SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Former California Gov. Jerry Brown wants to know who is trying to sell his father's memorabilia related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Private letters and other items that had belonged to Edmund G. "Pat" Brown when he was governor are being offered by the auction house Sotheby's, which estimates the value at about $30,000.

Sotheby's says the seller wants to remain anonymous.

Jerry Brown was not consulted or informed of the auction that starts Monday.

He believes the items should be part of his father's archives at the University of California, Berkeley.
