National Media.  A rare manuscript dealer is selling an archive of nearly 100 letters, most of them unpublished correspondence by John F. Kennedy about the necessity of sound environmental and domestic policy. The correspondence, all of which was written to Democratic California Gov. Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, has been given a value of $210,000 by the Philadelphia-based dealer, The Raab Collection.  The archive also includes correspondence from the 1950s through the 1980s to Brown _ who died in 1996 at age 90 _ from Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Harry Truman.  In a letter dated Oct. 28, 1960, a week after the last of four “Great Debates” between Kennedy and Nixon, Kennedy tells Brown that the country’s future success is contingent upon how its natural resources are managed.
