Catalogue Note

As the article describes, "The assassination of President Kennedy, the wounding of Governor [John] Connally, and the fatal shooting of [Lee Harvey] Oswald … have special, personal meaning for Texans. So because a Texas hospital and Texas physicians figured prominently in this tragedy, the Texas State Journal of Medicine records for its readers of the medical profession a full account of the treatment given to the never-to-be-forgotten trio." Sinatra was profoundly affected by Kennedy's assassination. Here he has turned down the top corner of the first page of this article and he has annotated the front wrapper of the magazine "D. Ask me. F. S."—evidently a note to Dorothy, Sinatra's trusted assistant, regarding binding instructions.
