This golf ball belonged to then Ensign John F. Kennedy when he was stationed in Charleston, South Carolina. In January 1942, JFK was assigned to an office at the Sixth Naval District, in Charleston, South Carolina. While there, he befriended Elijah N. Jones, who was a Lieutenant JG and head of the Office of Naval Intelligence field office. He and Kennedy roomed together and became golf partners and close friends until the President's death in 1963. The golf balls came into the possession of Mr. Jones while both he and JFK were stationed in South Carolina. The collection remained intact in the Jones family for over 70 years.
