Joseph P. Kennedy Personal Papers. Family, 1888-1973. Family Correspondence, 1923-1968. August 1943. JPKPP-002-009. John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
This series contains correspondence between immediate members of the Kennedy family, including spouses and grandchildren. Types of correspondence include letters, notes, telegrams, and postcards. Of particular note are Rose Kennedy’s “round robin” letters, which kept the large and scattered family in touch. Researchers should note this material was artificially arranged by Library staff from throughout the papers. Joseph P. Kennedy’s files did not contain specific folders on his family. Whenever possible, Library staff have estimated dates for undated letters and filed the items in the appropriate chronological files. Estimated dates are marked in brackets at the upper right corner of the documents. Undated letters whose dates could not be estimated are arranged by author at the end of the chronological files, and, in some cases, are further separated by subject. The “Undated: Miscellaneous” file contains letters from multiple authors or unknown authors, as well as unidentified fragments of letters. Due to the value and fragility of the originals, photocopies have been made for research use. A small number of items remain closed under deed restrictions. Correspondence with members of the Kennedy extended family, such as Rose Kennedy’s parents or Joseph Kennedy’s sister, will be found throughout the collection under the person’s name or in Series 1.2. Family Subject Files. See also Series 1.2. Family Subject Files for additional correspondence with spouses prior to marriage as well as correspondence with non-family members. Opened 8/2000, 3/2003, 11/2003-12/2003, 2/2004.
