Jack Ruby - Document Signed 02/11/1952 Co-signed By: O. L. Nelms For Sale

Jack Ruby - Document Signed 02/11/1952 Co-signed By: O. L. Nelms

JACK RUBY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO INSTALL AIR-CONDITIONING IN A WESTERN-TYPE NIGHTCLUB HE HAS JUST PURCHASED. INFORMATION ABOUT THE "BOB WILLS RANCH HOUSE" CAN BE FOUND IN THE WARREN REPORT.

Within five months, Ruby abandoned his interest in the nightclub and had a "mental breakdown".

JACK RUBY
Typed DS: "Jack Ruby" as Lessee and "O L Nelms" as Lessor, 1 page, 8½x14. (Dallas, Texas), 1952 February 11. In full: "This letter is intended to be, and shall be construed as part of and merged with lease executed between O.L. Nelms, as Lessor, and Jack Ruby, as Lessee, even date hereof, as follows: 1. The Lessee shall have the right, without further consent of Lessor, to make all reasonable and necessary changes and break-throughs on and of the leased premises, at Lessee's expense; and it is agreed that such installation may be moved and removed by Lessee at his will and/or at termination of this lease, if Lessee is not in default thereunder, so long as Lessee makes all reasonable and necessary repairs to save premises from any damage or injury." Staple holes in upper left and right blank edges, bottom blank edge torn and stained, else fine condition. Accompanied by photocopy of the two-page lease of Bob Wills Ranch Barn from Nelms to Ruby, also dated February 11, 1952. From the report of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy (WARREN REPORT): "In about 1952, Ruby borrowed $3,700 from a friend, Ralph Paul, to purchase the Bob Wills Ranch House with Martin Gimpel, a former associate in the Spartan Novelty Co. The Ranch House was run as a western-type nightclub. With two establishments to run, Ruby experienced substantial financial reversals in 1952. He abandoned his interest in the Ranch House and, on July 1, 1952, transferred the Silver Spur to Gimpel and Willie Epstein, who assumed some of its debts. Disappointed by these setbacks, Ruby stated that he had a 'mental breakdown,' and 'hibernated' in the Cotton Bowl Hotel in Dallas for 3 or 4 months, declining to see his friends.". In original worn and nicked blue folder titled: "Lease/O L Nelms/to/Jack Ruby", imprinted at bottom: "Brundidge, Fountain, Elliott & Bateman/Attotneys (sic)/Dallas, Texas". Fine condition. JACK RUBY (1911-1967), born Jacob Rubinstein in Chicago, spent much of his youth in foster homes and correctional facilities. As an adult he performed odd jobs, and there are claims that he worked for Al Capone. Ruby moved to Dallas in 1947 and engaged in a series of failed nightclub ventures (including the Ranch House, leased in this document), before opening his Carousel Club in 1954. On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. On November 24, 1963, in front of millions of television viewers, Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald, alleged assassin of President Kennedy. Ruby was found guilty of murder, but the verdict was set aside; he was awaiting a new trial when he died of cancer. Some have claimed that Ruby was assigned to silence Oswald. Others, including the Warren Commission, viewed him as a psychologically unstable and violent individual who had acted alone. O. L. NELMS was a very eccentric Dallas real estate tycoon who posted billboards thanking Dallas every time his worth increased by another million. He tried to endow a $5 million fund for the holding of lavish cocktail parties in his honor after his death, with his coffin present at the festivities, but when he died in 1972 the city refused to issue permits for such an event. After Ruby returned the Ranch House to Nelms, he converted it into the Longhorn Ballroom, which hosted major musical attractions for many years. Two items.
