DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - One of President John F. Kennedy’s rocking chairs, which he used in the Oval Office, and the flags that hung behind his desk are among the items on display this week for public viewing in Dallas.

The chair, which was originally placed in the office of Evelyn Lincoln, JFK’s personal secretary, was often moved into the Oval Office and used by President Kennedy during long meetings and working hours.

The two flags, an American flag and presidential flag, both stood behind President Kennedy’s desk until five days after the assassination. At that time, Jaqueline Kennedy asked that the flags be given to Lincoln.

The chair and flags are part of a 110 piece lot will be auctioned off by Heritage Auctions, located at 3500 Maple Avenue in Dallas. The items are on display from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day of the week leading up to the November 23 auction.

The items were collected by Dr. Dean William Rudoy, who volunteered for JFK’s campaign as an 11-year-old boy in 1960 and later worked on his presidential campaign.
