Description

The Senate has occupied its current Chamber in the United States Capitol since January 4, 1859. Passes to the 3rd floor galleries that surround the Chamber where visitors can watch the Senate’s proceedings—began being issued regularly in 1890. Previously, tickets were distributed only for special events such as impeachments, funerals or inaugurations. Then as now, each gallery pass requires the “signature” of a senator or officer of the Senate.

The American memory of J.F.K. is one of an immensely popular, glamorous and tragic presidency. However, the public life of Kennedy was far more expansive. An accomplished author and legislator, his service toward the advance of government and worthy literature far predates his tenure in the Oval Office. Kennedy was US Senator for Massachusetts (1953-1960).

Presented is an extraordinary piece of history that features John F. Kennedy as a young Senator from Massachusetts. It is a United States Senate Chamber pass, measuring 4.5″ x 2.75″. It was hand dated July 25, 1957. This one was admitting Russell Zwiford to the reserved gallery for the 85th Congress. He was a guest of Senator John Marshall Butler.

Presumably in passing, an autograph request was made to the future President by Zwiford. At-the-ready was this green Chamber pass and the dynamic Kennedy graciously signed the back in blue pen (“7” some paper loss). Overall, a very rare and unique vintage item.
