About This Item

Washington. Very Good. 1981. Letter. 1 pages; Two sheet Western Union Telegram "Night Letter" from Edward M. Kennedy to Rowland Evans Jr. "05/15/81 /// PMS Rowland Evans Jr. DLR / 3125 O St NW / Washington DC 20008 // HAS IT REALLY BEEN EIGHTEEN YEARS? // TO ME, IT FEELS LIKE A HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN. / CONGRATULATIONS, / EDWARD M. KENNEDY // 1939 EST / NNNN" A few creases, otherwise very good condition. A message from Kennedy congratulating Rowland Evans on the 18th anniversay of the establishment of his column with Robert Novak "Inside Report" PROVENANCE: Rowland Evans was a provocative newspaper columnist, commentator and author who antagonized liberal politicians and championed conservative causes. He left Yale and enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1942 during World War II and was discharged in 1944 because of malaria. In 1963, Mr. Evans and Mr. Novak began writing ''Inside Report,'' an insider's view of politics that was published four times a week until Mr. Evans retired in 1993. Mr. Evans and Robert Novak began their work as columnists in the early 1960's, a time when newspaper columnists wielded outsize influence in national politics. The pair pioneered in transferring that influence to the medium of cable television with the political discussion program ''Evans & Novak'' -- carried on CNN from that cable network's beginning. Rowland Evans and his wife Kay (Katherine Winton Evans), also a respected writer and editor, were mainstays on the Washington social scene, hosting many memorable gatherings in their handsome Georgetown house -- to which flocked influential and remarkable people drawn from journalism, politics and general society over the decades from the 1960s to the 2000s. Both Evans and Novak became more predictably conservative over the years, particularly during the Reagan years. Reportedly, both columnists voted for JFK in 1960 and for Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Evans earned a place on Richard Nixon's infamous "Enemies List." Novak reported that Evans had JFK as a guest for the first dinner party the latter attended as President Elect. Kay and Rowland Evans has a particularly close friendship with Robert F. Kennedy, his wife Ethel and their family. .
