Photograph of JFK and Jackie, Signed
np, 1964. 10 x 8 inch image. Mounted. Laid into green morocco spine and cloth drop box. Inscribed on the photo "For Dr. Tavell-with deepest appreciation for everything/ With affection/ Jacqueline Kennedy." Dr. Janet G. Travell (1901-1997) was a New York physician was and medical researcher. She was appointed the personal physician to President John F. Kennedy in 1961. She graduated from Wellesley College and Cornell University Medical College. She was the first female doctor to be the personal physician to a sitting United States president and retained that post until March,1965. Her specialty was treating muscular pain. Kennedy's injuries from WW II were the beginnings of his back pain problems. She helped him in the late 1950s so much that he chose her as his personal physician while he was in the White House. The photo is accompanied by a small typed note on White House stationery signed by Tavell which explains that this photo was taken when the Kennedys were in Mexico at the end of June, 1962.
