JFK Orig "Wanted for Treason" Poster *VERY RARE*
Item Details
Description
(John F. Kennedy) Original "Wanted for Treason" Handbill. John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) 35th President. On November 21, 1963 "Wanted for Treason" handbills were distributed on the streets of Dallas, before Kennedy's scheduled visit. These handbills bore a reproduction of a front and profile photograph of the President and set forth a series of inflammatory charges against him. Robert A. Surrey was eventually identified as the author of the handbill. Surrey, a printing salesman employed by Johnson Printing Co. of Dallas, had been closely associated with General Edwin Walker. Walker was known for his right wing political views and for having been an assassination target of Lee Harvey Oswald in April 1963. Bernard Wiessman, responsible for the black-bordered "Welcome Mr. Kennedy" advertisement in the November 22 Dallas Morning News, also an associate of Walker's and a prominent John Birch Society member, testified to The Warren Commission that he saw a copy of one of these handbills on the floor of Walker's car shortly after November 22nd. The commission found no evidence of any connection between those responsible for the handbill and Oswald or the actual assassination. However, Oswald attended a meeting held by Walker in Dallas one month before the assassination. An original 9" x 12" "Wanted for Treason" handbill, has uneven toning and age spotting. These handbills are excessively rare there are only three others known to exist.
