Papers of John F. Kennedy. Personal Papers. Doodles. 1963: KP90-KP98
From 1952 until John Kennedy's death, Mrs. Evelyn Lincoln, his personal secretary, accumulated and cataloged messages, notes and jottings which Kennedy, and occasionally others, generated, then left behind. The result is a collection of reminders, speech changes, thoughts, drafts and incidentals which parallel Kennedy's career. Mrs. Lincoln transcribed handwritten portions where necessary, documented each item with date, time and detail she deemed important. Her narratives enrich the archival record especially in documenting telephone conversations. However, many errors have been found in Mrs. Lincoln's identification and transcription, and researchers are encouraged to read the Note to Researchers preceeding the box list. Mrs. Lincoln's cataloging system and order have been retained. A short summary of her narrative describes each item in the folder title list, giving date and occasion, sometimes topic. Individual doodles often do not represent the topic expressed in the narratives. A duplicate set of Doodles, complete only through 1962 item KP26, is in surplus at the end of this collection. KC, KS and KP designations represent Kennedy's Congressional, Senatorial and Presidential years, respectively.
