Lt. Hirschy's Note on JFK's funeral procession and
Lt. Hirschy's personal invitation to John F. Kennedy's funeral on November 25th, 1963 at Saint Matthews Cathedral. Completely intact, this invitation includes a black bordered prayer card (4.75 x 3.5''), the folded invitation (8 x 5 unfolded), and accompanying envelope (4 x 5). The invitation and envelope suffer from slight yellowing due to age.\n\nThe front of the prayer cards displays the profile of a smiling John F. Kennedy in gray scale. The reverse of the card features John F. Kennedy's dates, a prayer, as well as excerpts from President Kennedy's infamous inaugural address. The funeral invitations feature an embossed Presidential Seal above the text denoting the time and place for the funeral at Saint Matthews Cathedral.\n\nIncluded in this lot is a handwritten note from Lt. Hirschy, written on 8 x 5'' White House stationery on November 24, 1963, two days after Kennedy's assassination. In it he mentions that he was told he could view Kennedy's funeral procession, occurring in 50 minutes, but notes that he is unable to attend. Two days after President Kennedy's assassination on November 22, 1963, there was a procession in which Kennedy's flag-covered casket was transported via horse-drawn caisson, which had borne the body of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Unknown Soldier, down the White House drive, past parallel rows of soldiers bearing the flags of the 50 States of the Union, then along Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol Rotunda to lie in state. The funeral was held the following day.\n\nThese items come directly from the Hirschy family. Lieutenant Hirschy was Supply and Logistics Officer for the Military Aides to the President and Officer-in-Charge of the Navy Mess in the White House during both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. His duties also included taking care of the President’s needs on overseas trips, aboard the presidential yachts and at Camp David. Lt. Hirschy served in the White House from May 1, 1961 through May 31, 1965. Guernsey's
