This diary confirms that John F. Kennedy was one of the most qualified, intelligent, and insightful commanders-in-chief in American history.

A diary with Kennedy’s unedited inner thoughts on politics and his personal beliefs was sold at a Boston auction Wednesday for $718,750, significantly higher than the original bid estimate of $200,000. 

The 61-page diary includes both handwritten and typed pages, which are bound in a black leather binder. Kennedy, who was 28 at the time, kept the diary during his brief time as a journalist for the Hearst newspaper company during the summer of 1945.
By summer’s end, Kennedy officially declared his run for Congress. The final handwritten pages of the diary include his reservations on running for office and his thoughts on why he wanted to serve.
