#3 - John F. Kennedy, Harry S. Truman, and Eleanor Roosevelt Signed Seating List Estimate: $6,000+

The brass of the Democratic Party of 1959—JFK, Truman, and Roosevelt

Seating list from the Advisory Council of the Democratic National Committee Diamond Jubilee Dinner honoring Eleanor Roosevelt at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City on December 7, 1959, eight pages 8.5 x 14, signed on the cover sheet in blue ballpoint by John F. Kennedy, Harry S. Truman, and Eleanor Roosevelt. The cover is also signed by 10 other Democratic leaders in ink and ballpoint, including: Adlai Stevenson, Hubert H. Humphrey, Pat Brown, Paul M. Butler, Mike Monroney, Mike Mansfield, Carl Albert, John McCormack, Stuart Symington, and Robert Meyner. In very good to fine condition, with staple holes and a paperclip impression to the upper left corner, light toning, and two horizontal folds.

Technically an evening feting the former first lady, an Associated Press news story instead dubbed the evening a 'beauty contest' of 1960 presidential hopefuls from the Democratic Party. Led by Truman, the night's 'honorary chairman,' the article cited Stevenson, the event's official chairman, as the leading candidate and the Democrats' best chance to secure the White House. Fascinating in historical context, the eventual winner of the 1960 election—Bay State Senator John F. Kennedy—was mentioned last after New Jersey Governor Robert Meyner. Three weeks after this event, on January 2, 1960, Kennedy announced his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination. A unique and marvelous ensemble of presidential possibilities.
