New revelations from 'Camelot'
Placeholder Image
Nearly a half-century after the death of President John F. Kennedy, there remains a fascination with him and his family. The young Massachusetts senator won a narrow victory over Richard Nixon in 1960, and his brief administration has become known to many as “Camelot,” a reference to the verve, idealism and sense of idyllic happiness that surrounded his time in office and the mood of the country at that time. Part of the mystique was Kennedy’s young wife, Jacqueline, who displayed admirable courage during his assassination and went on to capture the public’s imagination, whether it was through her controversial marriage to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis or her decision to immerse herself in the workaday world of New York book editing.
