Description


Original 6.25 x 5 invitation to the "First Anniversary Mass in memory of John Fitzgerald Kennedy," celebrated by Richard Cardinal Cushing at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston on November 22, 1964, marked for "Pew 250." In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed to Richard Flood in Lowell. Richard Flood had been a classmate and roommate of Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., at Harvard College and Harvard Law School. Like both Kennedy brothers, Flood had served in the Navy during World War II. When Joseph Kennedy, Jr., was killed in England, John F. Kennedy reached out to Richard Flood for assistance in compiling As We Remember Joe, a memorial volume privately printed in 1945 as a gift to Kennedy’s parents and Joe’s close friends. Flood also aided Kennedy in his first Congressional campaign in 1946. They remained close friends until Kennedy's death in 1963.
