Unused wooden-covered scrapbook given to the Kennedy family upon John F. Kennedy's election, 14 x 11, with wooden letters reading, "The Kennedy Family." Apparently handmade, the scrapbook features metal hinges, a green felt lining inside the covers, and blank black pages. In very good to fine condition, with scratching to the exterior boards. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Karen Boyer Lepanto, a descendent of Capitol Police Officer James H. Boyer, Sr., who helped the Kennedy family move from Georgetown into the White House, noting: "The Kennedys had received many gifts from the public after the election, and Boyer was asked to store some in his basement, including this wooden covered 'Kennedy Family' empty scrapbook. After the assassination of the President, Boyer was one of the main Capitol police guarding the Capitol Rotunda during the viewing of the coffin."
