Lot 81: TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, United States Senate letterhead, July 13, 1955. Letter to Lady May Lawford sent care of her daughter-in-law, his sister Pat Kennedy, who was married to actor Peter Lawford. In part: "Enclosed is a copy of a letter and enclosures which I have received from William J. Sheppard, Acting Deputy Director for Management, of the International Cooperation Administration, in the interest of Mr. George De Masirevich…I stressed the fact that Mr. DeMasirevich was desirous of securing some of the architectural work in connection with the Government Building Programs around the world. It was my feeling that it was contract work he wished and not an appointment within the Agency. If this is the case, let me know and I will be happy to look into the matter again." In fine condition, with the lower horizontal mailing fold passing through the bottom of the signature. Born in Hungary, George De Masirevich ran a successful private architectural practice in southern California and had just become a naturalized US citizen in April 1955. A desirable association piece within the Kennedy family, connecting the popular politician with the glamor of Hollywood.
