Dr. Malcolm Oliver Perry II (1929 – 2009) Signed John F. Kennedy First Day Cover, "Malcolm O. Perry M.D.", blue ink, 6.5 x 3.5, with photo of President Kennedy beneath which is printed "In Memoriam JOHN F. KENNEDY 1917-1963, 35th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" and the famous Kennedy quote "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country....", postmarked May 23, 1964, with four 5 cent Kennedy stamps, signed by the American physician and surgeon. Perry was one of the doctors who attended to President John F. Kennedy at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, on 22 November 1963 after Kennedy was shot. Two days later, he attended to Kennedy's alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald after he was shot.
When President Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963, he was taken to Parkland Hospital. Perry was one of the doctors to attend to Kennedy, performing a tracheotomy over the small wound in Kennedy's throat. Perry also rendered aid to Texas Governor John Connally, who was travelling in the car with Kennedy and was also shot. Following the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby, on November 24, Perry was one of the doctors to tend to Oswald. Following Oswald's death, Perry made an effort to leave the Dallas area in order to avoid the many press conferences and press questions. Signed items by Perry are extremely rare as Perry avoided attention concerning his involvement in the event. In fine condition.
