Description :

Signed (Secretarial). Octavo. This copy has a secretarial presentation and an interesting provenance. Kennedy's 1960 book was sent by him to a prominent Virginia Democrat prior to the Democratic Convention in Los Angeles which nominated JKF for the Presidency. It is inscribed by a Kennedy secretary "To J. Clifford Miller, Jr. With regards and best wishes, John Kennedy". An accompanying letter (on Senate stationery and probably signed by autopen) states "Looking forward to seeing you in Los Angeles, and with every good wish, Sincerely, John Kennedy." While the senator was very anxious to secure the support of the Virginia delegation at the Los Angeles Convention, he failed to do so. The Virginia democrats were still under the sway of Harry Byrd and the old machine politics. Byrd in fact sought and received from Miller a list of businessmen throughout the state to whom he could send copies of a speech condemning the Democratic platform. Miller himself mailed to 14,000 voters in southern and central Virginia a copy of a letter from Adam Clayton Powell in which Powell stressed the Massachusetts senator's support for "massive scholarship assistance for African students" and a Fair Employment Practices Commission -- not issues that played well in Southern Virginia in 1960! On October 29, 1960 Clifford Miller released a statement that he and six other members of the Richmond City Democratic Committee intended to vote for the Nixon-Lodge Ticket (James R. Sweeney. "Whispers in the Golden Silence: Harry F. Byrd, Sr., John F. Kennedy, and Virginia Democrats in the 1960 Presidential Election.", Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Jan. 1991, Vol. 99, No. 1). Miller was very much a player in the Virginia Democratic Party, and this signed copy is a significant relic of the great President's failed efforts to win the support of conservative Virginia Democrats. Black cloth binding is slightly sunned at the spine; mated dust jacket shows typical edgewear but presents well in its mylar cover. Very Good binding / Very Good dust jacket.
