Description:

President Kennedy Funeral Announcement & Admin, Ticket

Three piece set comprising of the black bordered funeral services announcement for President Kennedy, scheduled for November Twenty-Fifth, 1963 at Saint Matthews Cathedral. 5" x 8". Accompanied by the original hand addressed envelope to Hon. Nicholas deB. Katzenbach, 5" x 4.75", with the original entrance ticket issued as "Personal Friends" 3.75" x 2.5'. All in fine condition.  From the collection of Ronald Hoskins, assassinologist.

The recipient of this card was Nicholas deBelleville "Nick" Katzenbach (January 17, 1922 – May 8, 2012) an American lawyer who served as United States Attorney General during the Lyndon B. Johnson administration. Katzenbach has been credited with providing advice after the assassination of John F. Kennedy that led to the creation of the Warren Commission. On November 25, 1963, he sent a memo to Johnson's White House aide Bill Moyers recommending the creation of a Presidential Commission to investigate the assassination. To combat speculation of a conspiracy, Katzenbach said the results of the FBI's investigation should be made public. He wrote, in part: "The public must be satisfied that Oswald was the assassin; that he did not have confederates who are still at large".

Four days after Katzenbach's memo, Johnson appointed some of the nation's most prominent figures, including the Chief Justice of the United States, to the Commission. Conspiracy theorists later called the memo, one of thousands of files released by the National Archives in 1994, the first sign of a cover-up by the government.
