John F. Kennedy Jr., Arizona Highways Fan

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 4.05.45 PMA while back, we received a scanned copy of this September 1995 letter to Lee and Sharon Young of Western Junk in Holbrook. Apparently, the son of the 35th president was a fan of Arizona Highways. Click the letter to enlarge it, or here’s a full transcript:

9-20-95

Dear Lee & Sharon:

Just a quick note to say hello and to thank you again as I sit here reading my Arizona Highways October issue. The only problem I have with the magazine is every time I read it I wonder what the heck I’m doing on the East Coast! Hope to be out there again soon. Hope you are both well.

Sincerely,
John Kennedy

We always love to hear about noteworthy people reading our magazine, so if you know of other correspondence like this, please let us know!
