Possible Last Autograph of John F. Kennedy

What was possibly the last autograph signed by President John F. Kennedy sold recently at an auction with other items linked to his assassination.

He signed the front page of the Dallas Morning News on November 22, 1963 for a maid named Jan White. He had just entered the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce to give a breakfast speech. Later that day he was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald.

The date of Kennedy's assassination was on the paper near his signature.

The winning bid of $39,000 was placed by Joe Maddalena, president and owner of Profiles in History in Calabassas, California.
