WESTPORT, Conn. - May 22, 2020 - PRLog -- An online-only auction dedicated entirely to Kennedy memorabilia, entitled Collecting Camelot: John & Jackie Kennedy Family Auction, will be held Wednesday, June 10th, by University Archives, at 10:30 am Eastern time. The auction is up and online now, on several bidding platforms, including University Archives' revamped website, www.universityarchives.com.

"University Archives pays tribute to America's Royalty, the Kennedy family, with a spectacular themed sale consisting of more than 130 lots carefully selected from many different consignors," said John Reznikoff, the president and owner of University Archives. "Kennedy collectors everywhere should mark their calendars for June 10th."

The full catalog is already up and online for bidding and viewing, at the new University Archives website, as well as on the popular online platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Visitors will see that the collection of unique historical documents, autographed letters, photographs, mementoes, and relics represents three major areas for Kennedy collectors.

"First, the sale will explore the personal lives of John, Jacqueline, Robert, John Jr., Joseph Sr., and other members of the Kennedy family," Mr. Reznikoff said. "Second, we are celebrating the political legacy of the Kennedy dynasty, from JFK's days as a junior senator from Massachusetts to the White House, and to his younger brother's later bid for the presidency. Finally, our sale is particularly strong in documenting Kennedy's assassination in Dallas on November 22, 1963."

Sale highlights include JFK's personally owned rosary beads, previously gifted via donation by Jack's mother, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, to Sister Fabiola Parent of the Sinsinawa Sisterhood in Wisconsin. "Sister Fab" collected rosaries from around the world for her Sinsinawa Rosary Museum. Rose sent her the 18-inch-long rosary beads as a gift, in 1974. This was after Sister Fab had fashioned a rosary out of rose petals that she gave to Rose as a gift (est. $15,000-$17,000).
