Item details

This is a beautiful 50 year old letter from the Johnson White house Special Assistant Ralph A. Dungan to a Michigan City, In. resident. Mr. Ott wrote President Johnson with Ideas for the Kennedy Memorial as other US Citizens did. Kennedy had died 5 months earlier. Mr. Dungan was the Special Assistant for President Kennedy and then President Johnson after Kennedys death. Mr. Dungan just passed away in Oct. 2013 at the age of 90 years old. Just 6 months ago.

As a special assistant to President John F. Kennedy and a member of his inner circle, Mr. Dungan served on a task force on foreign aid and handled African and then Latin American affairs, which became his specialty. He was also known as an effective recruiter for the administration, bringing dozens of talented people to Washington.

After Kennedy’s assassination in November 1963, Mr. Dungan stayed on as an adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson on Latin American affairs. Johnson named him to the Chilean post in late 1964.
