John F. Kennedy was the youngest man to be elected president of the United States. The interesting story behind this check reveals the strength of Kennedy's character. Kennedy hardly ever carried change and often had to borrow money to pay immediate expenses. Within a few days after borrowing money from an employee at the Statler Hotel in Detroit, John Kennedy sent an autographed letter of explanation and this check to cover his debt. John Kennedy's financial legacy is revealed in Money Secrets of the Rich and Famous. This reproduction would look great in an album or display.
