DescriptionEdward Moore Kennedy (1932-2009) Signed Invitation to a Reception Honoring Kennedy, "Ted Kennedy", 4 x 6.5, October 6, 1972, Indiana Convention Exposition Center, was an American politician and lawyer who served as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts for almost 47 years, from 1962 until his death in 2009. The 1969 death of Mary Jo Kopechne in the Chappaquiddick incident had greatly hindered Kennedy's future presidential prospects, and shortly after the incident he declared that he would not be a candidate in the 1972 U.S. presidential election. Nevertheless, polls in 1971 suggested he could win the nomination if he tried, and Kennedy gave some thought to running. This $100 a person fund raiser is some indication that he was still giving it some serious consideration. In the end he chose not to run. In fine condition.
