Visa Recipient

    Visa #2640

About the Individual

This visa was issued by Aristides de Sousa Mendes in Bordeaux on June 22, 1940.

This could be John J. KENNEDY, age 41, accompanying Ambassador Joseph P. KENNEDY on a flight from Lisbon to New York on the Pan Am Atlantic Clipper seaplane in October 1940. Presumably Ambassador KENNEDY, with his diplomatic passport, did not need a visa.
