Very hard to find June 1968 copies of Time (6/14/68) and Newsweek (6/17/68) which cover the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy on the cover, in many black & white and color photographs, and in depth articles that recount the life of Bobby Kennedy and the details of his murder by Sirhan Sirhan. The articles go into detail on Robert Kennedy's service in the administration of his brother John F. Kennedy, championing of civil rights, and his political rise as he ran for teh presidency he was poised to win before his assassination on that fateful day of June 6, 1968. Defeated by Eugene McCarthy in Oregon, Kennedy desperately needed to win the California Presidential primary, and on June 5, 1968 he did. His victory speech at Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel ended with the phrase: “And now, on to Chicago…” Leaving the building through the hotel’s kitchen area, Bobby Kennedy was accosted by a Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, who was reputedly angry with Kennedy because of the Senator’s support of Israel. Firing at Kennedy, he felled the Senator with 3 shots including one to the head, and also hit other bystanders with gunfire. Senator Robert F. Kennedy died the next day, and his funeral was an emotional event that began at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and culminated in Arlington Cemetery’s only evening burial. The Time and Newsweek articles recount this history, the gunman and his plotting, and the emotional aftermath of Kennedy's assassination. Also filled with great vintage advertising for cars, cigarettes, early computers (we've included a photo of an IBM ad which was an early use of an African American in a major company national ad), and more, these 2 vintage news magazines were part of a major estate consignment exclusive to Collectics from a major collector of Kennedy memorabilia
