Shortly After The John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts Was Named, President Johnson Appoints A Man To Be A Trustee
by LYNDON B. JOHNSON
LYNDON B. JOHNSON (1908-1973). Johnson was the Thirty-Sixth President. DS. 1pg. 23” x 19”. August 19, 1964. Washington. A scarce Presidential appointment signed “Lyndon B. Johnson” as President and co-signed “Dean Rusk” as Secretary of State. The President appointed Arthur Penn of New York “a Member of the Board of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts”. This Arthur Penn may be the famous movie director who worked on landmark 1960s films The Miracle Worker and Bonnie and Clyde. The National Cultural Center in Washington dates back to 1958, when President Eisenhower signed bipartisan legislation to create a theater on the banks of the Potomac River. Two months after Kennedy’s assassination, Congress authorized $23 million to create the building as a memorial to the last President, and it was thus named the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. It opened to the public in September 1971. The document is in very fine condition with a dark autograph, a very large and intact seal, a couple small chips to the border, and a light and nearly unnoticeable waterstain to the verso. A fine document connecting President Kennedy with his successor. (Inventory #: 4143)
