John F. Kennedy 1961 Typed Letter Signed as President - Handwritten Postscript:
35th President. Typed letter signed “John Kennedy" AS PRESIDENT, to Mrs. Henry H. Stickney, on White House letterhead, Washington, October 17, 1961, with an autograph postscript.
President Kennedy writes to Mrs. Stickney, evidently a Radcliffe alumna, about the dedication of a tree in honor of Dr. Sara Jordan. Kennedy was a longtime patient of Dr. Jordan, who was the head gastroenterologist at the Lahey Clinic in Boston. He was a frequent and long-term patient at Lahey Clinic for his gastrointestinal problems and his chronic backache. In this correspondence Kennedy offers a few personal words about Dr. Jordan to commemorate the Radcliffe College Class of 1905 dedicating a tree in her honor in Radcliffe Yard. JFK notes that Dr. Jordan "was one of the most remarkable people I have ever known", and adds in a handwritten postscript, "My affection for her was complete."
