Peter Lawford files
Peter Lawford, John F. Kennedy’s brother-in-law, was a major player in Hollywood in the 1960s and had a tremendous influence in both the film world and the political world. These expansive files include correspondences between Lawford and Kennedy, information about Marilyn Monroe, a close friend of Lawford’s, and behind the scenes files about the connection of Hollywood and Washington. These files have never been released before and remained in the possession of Lawford’s business partner, Milton Ebbins, for 40 years.
All the files will be sold on the third day of the McInnis auction summit, Nov. 22-24.
