«NOVEMBER 22, 1963 (Friday) 12:00 AM (Nov. 22, 1963) Nine Secret Service agents drinking at Pat Kirkwood’s bar the “Cellar Door” in Fort Worth, ...»

Collector Robert L. White agreed to give Caroline B. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr. two of their father’s handwritten journals and a clock the president kept in the Oval Office, said Robert Adler, White’s attorney. The Kennedys could not immediately be reached for comment. White was ‘’very glad to have the controversy behind him,’’ Adler said. ‘’He did not get into this auction wanting controversy, particularly with the Kennedys.... He’s a happier man.’’ In exchange for White’s agreement to hand over some auction items and several pieces of Kennedy memorabilia from his personal collection, the children agreed to give up all claims to ownership of other auction items, Adler said. White received the Kennedy memorabilia as a bequest from Evelyn Norton Lincoln, Kennedy’s longtime personal secretary, who died in 1995. Guernsey’s auction house had originally planned to sell more than 500 items, starting this afternoon. The items included campaign trinkets, photos, party invitations, clothes, furniture and a sailboat. Earlier, White had agreed in negotiations with the National Archives to remove an estimated 21 pieces from the auction. The agreement with the children did not cover a briefcase and a watch which Kennedy had with him in Dallas when he died in 1963, Adler said. Although the Kennedys had requested those items, they are still slated for sale. While the disputed items held great importance for the Kennedy children, they were only a small part of White’s collection, Adler said. ‘’We’re not talking a huge number of things,’’ he said. He added that the Kennedys planned to give the items to the Kennedy Library. In addition to the two journals and the clock, White also agreed to turn over several pieces of memorabilia which were not on the auction block, Adler said. He declined to describe those items. Mrs. Lincoln has been portrayed as fiercely loyal to the president and his memory. But Kennedy’s children had said earlier that they considered her collection of JFK items to be a betrayal. ‘’Mrs. Lincoln breached both the public trust and that of our family,’’ the Kennedys said. ‘’The number of items she took for herself, and the intensely personal character of many of them, is overwhelming. It appears she even went so far as to keep for herself the briefcase and watch that were with our father at the time of his death.’’ But White’s attorney and Guernsey’s jumped to Mrs.

Lincoln’s defense. Adler said White was upset by ‘’the attack on Mrs. Lincoln, who served JFK and later the Kennedy family for many years with love and devotion.’’ White’s business manager, Allan Burt, said White hopes to open a museum dedicated to Kennedy with the auction proceeds. Arlen Ettinger, president of Guernsey’s, said, ‘’It is disappointing that the Kennedy children have chosen unnecessarily to sully the name and image of a woman like Evelyn Lincoln who was so dedicated to their father and who was so dear to both of their parents.’’ Adler said White already has removed seven lots from the auction, including a writing desk used by Kennedy and six sets of documents. He said the government claimed some of the items endangered national security, while others were believed to properly belong to the American people. Still up for sale are the gold PT boat pin worn by Kennedy the day before he was assassinated, rocking chairs, a Harvard cardigan and the pens Kennedy used to sign the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Two years ago, in a sale sponsored by the Kennedy family, Sotheby’s bidders paid $34.5 million on 5,000 items from the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

March 27, 1998 A seven-month reinvestigation of the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. has found no evidence that anyone other than James Earl Ray committed the crime, Dist. Atty. Bill Gibbons says today.

Dave Powers, the Boston Irishman who was JFK’s famously devoted aide, dies today in an Arlington suburban hospital. He is n 85.

May 14, 1998 Frank Sinatra dies tonight at 10:50 PM (Pacific Time) in the emergency room of Cedars-Sinai Medin cal Center in California. An ambulance had taken him to the hospital earlier in the evening.

Had he lived, JFK would have been 81-years-old this year.

John F. Kennedy, Jr. gets his pilot’s license this month. Kennedy tells USA Today that none of his relatives could be persuaded to fly with him. “The only person I’ve been able to get to go up with me, who looks forward to it as much as I do, is my wife,’’ he says.

“The second it was legal she came up with me.’’ Now, “whenever we want to get away, we can just get in a plane and fly off,’’ he says.

May 18, 1998 Today, the Supreme Court rejected an appeal by New Orleans prosecutor Harry Connick to refuse to turn over JFK assassination related files. He was seeking to quash a subpoena from the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) to turn over all remaining files related to the Clay Shaw investigation done by Jim Garrison in the late sixties. Clay Shaw was found not guilty in 1969 of any participation in a conspiracy to assassinate JFK. Last year an appeals court ruled Connick had to turn over the files, which include notes, memos, drawings, letters and tape recordings. Connick’s appeal argument was that the ARRB, which was created by Congress in 1992, lacked the authority to request turning over of those records. The Supreme Court rejected that appeal without comment.

June 3, 1998 Lucien E. Conein, 79, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and covert intelligence agent whose career n ranged from landing by aircraft in Nazi-occupied France during World War II to participation in the coup d’etat that brought down South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963, dies today at Suburban Hospital, Virginia. He had heart ailments and had been hospitalized for several months after breaking a hip. He retired from the military and CIA in 1968 but later joined the Drug Enforcement Administration, where he directed an intelligence-gathering and operations unit until his civilian retirement in 1984. He sometimes talked about his OSS service in wartime France, where he lived and worked with the Corsican Brotherhood, which also was part of the Resistance. Before he left France, he was made a member, Colonel Conein said. He added: “When the Sicilians put out a contract, it’s usually limited to the continental United States, or maybe Canada or Mexico. But with the Corsicans, it’s international. They’ll go anywhere. There’s an old Corsican proverb: ‘If you want revenge and you act within 20 years, you’re acting in haste.’ “ Former CIA colleague E. Howard Hunt considered hiring Colonel Conein for the group that bungled the 1972 Watergate burglary at the Democratic National Committee headquarters, which ultimately led to the scandal that resulted in President Richard M. Nixon’s resignation. “If I’d been involved, we’d have done it right,” Col. Conein once said. After leaving the CIA in 1968, Colonel Conein returned to South Vietnam as a private businessman. In 1972, he joined the DEA. He was in media headlines in the mid-1970s when then-Senator Lowell Weicker (R-Connecticut) investigated allegations that a DEA unit was preparing to arrange the assassination of drug lords. These charges were denied, and nothing was ever proven. Colonel Conein’s decorations included a Distinguished Service Cross, a Silver Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, a Bronze Star and the CIA’s Intelligence Star. Arlington National Cemetery website July 19, 1998 John F. Kennedy, Jr. addresses the National Democratic Convention - and is warmly received.

July 31, 1998 WASHINGTON (AP) -- New testimony released Friday about the autopsy on John F. Kennedy says a second set of pictures was taken of Kennedy’s wounds -- pictures never made public. The existence of additional photographs -- believed taken by White House photographer Robert L. Knudsen during or after the autopsy at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

-- raised new questions about how the autopsy was conducted, a subject of intense debate for 35 years. But the new evidence sheds no light on the whereabouts of the second set of pictures. Kennedy was killed Nov. 22, 1963. The following year, a commission chaired by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren concluded the killer was Lee Harvey Oswald and that he acted alone and was not part of a conspiracy.
