Description

Oversized Eisenstaedt portrait inscribed by John F. Kennedy to the longest-serving Parliamentarian of the United States House of Representatives

Fantastic oversized vintage matte-finish 8.75 x 12.5 Alfred Eisenstaedt portrait of Kennedy taken in August 1960 after his nomination as the Democratic presidential candidate, nicely signed and inscribed in the lower border in fountain pen, "For Lewis Deschler, with esteem and very good wishes, John F. Kennedy.” Nicely double-matted and framed with a plaque to an overall size of 17 x 20.5. In fine condition, with two light creases touching the inscription.

Lewis Deschler (1905-1976) was the first and longest-serving Parliamentarian of the United States House of Representatives, responsible for advising the House's presiding officers, members, and staff on procedural questions under the U.S. Constitution and House rules and precedents, as well as for preparing, compiling, and publishing the precedents of the House. A marvelous oversize portrait with an important political association.
