SpColl 24: The Kennedy Collection

Scope and Content

This collection of newspapers and periodicals highlight the lives of the Kennedy family, specifically John F. Kennedy, his impact on American history, and his assassination.

The media branded the Kennedy's "America's Royal Family" and it stuck. John F. Kennedy was America's first twentieth-century president. His elegance and style captured the nation. The sense and semblance of culture was everywhere. The "Jackie look", rocking chairs, and the two button suits he wore, were "in". No president has ever been so accessible to the press and no president's death more tragic.
