8th November 2017
Uncommon blank Commonwealth of Massachusetts "State Primary Nomination Paper" for the 1952 Democratic Senate Primary, one page both sides, 14 x 22, reading, in part: "We make the following nomination of a candidate for the office of United States Senator to be voted for in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at the primaries to be held on the 16th day of September, 1952, viz.:—Name of Candidate, John F. Kennedy, Residence, 122 Bowdoin St., Boston, Political Party Enrolment, Democrat, Political Party (whose nomination is sought), Democratic." The paper provides areas for 76 signatures of Massachusetts voters to nominate the candidate. In fine condition, with intersecting folds. Kennedy launched his intensive campaign for Senate in early 1952, and would ultimately unseat Henry Cabot Lodge in the November election.
