Kennedy took steps to support the Civil Rights Movement, and after his death his proposed civil rights bill was passed as the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Kennedy brought to the White House a contrast in organization compared to the structure of former-General Eisenhower. Kennedy preferred the structure of a wheel with all the spokes leading to the president. He was ready and willing to make the number of quick decisions required in such an environment. He selected a mixture of experienced and inexperienced people to serve in his cabinet and we can learn our jobs together, he stated. Kennedys brother, Robert F. Kennedy, served as Attorney General, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was largely sidelined during the administration. Thurgood Marshall, who Kennedy appointed to the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th president at noon on January 20,1961.

He added, All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days, nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. The address reflected Kennedys confidence that his administration would chart an historically significant course in both policy and foreign affairs. President Kennedys foreign policy was dominated by American confrontations with the Soviet Union, in 1961, Kennedy anxiously anticipated a summit with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. He started off on the foot by reacting aggressively to a routine Khrushchev speech on Cold War confrontation in early 1961Presidency of John F. Kennedy – Presidency of John F. Kennedy

Unwilling to give Onassis his guarantee, Rainier used his veto to cancel the entire hotel project, in the Supreme Court of Monaco the share creation was challenged by Onassis who claimed that it was unconstitutional, but the court found against him in March 1967.

As recommended by the HSCA, the evidence indicating conspiracy was subsequently re-examined and rejected.

Polling in 2013 showed that 60% of Americans believe that a group of conspirators was responsible for the assassination, President Kennedy traveled to Texas to smooth over frictions in the Democratic Party between liberals Ralph Yarborough and Don Yarborough and conservative John Connally.

The actual route was chosen to be a meandering 10-mile route between the two places, which could be driven slowly in the allotted time, on November 14, both men attended a meeting at Love Field and drove over the route that Sorrels believed best suited for the motorcade. From Love Field, the route passed through a portion of Dallas, through Downtown along Main Street. The planned route to the Trade Mart was widely reported in Dallas newspapers several days before the event, for the benefit of people who wished to view the motorcade. The route on Main Street precluded a direct turn onto the Fort Worth Turnpike exit, the Texas School Book Depository was situated at this corner of Houston and Elm. Three vehicles were used for Secret Service and police protection in the Dallas motorcade, the first car, an unmarked white Ford, carried Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry, Secret Service Agent Win Lawson, Sheriff Bill Decker and Dallas Field Agent Forrest Sorrels.

It can be reached from nearby Interstate 93 or via shuttle bus or walk from the JFK/UMass stop on the Boston subways Red line. At the time there were four other Presidential Libraries, the Hoover Presidential Library, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, the Truman Library. They were all scattered around the country in small towns from New York to Iowa, Kennedy had not decided on any design concept yet, but he felt that the existing presidential libraries were placed too far away from scholarly resources. Kennedy chose a plot of land next to the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, the building would face the Charles River which was a few feet away, and on the other side of which, the dormitories that included Winthrop House where Kennedy spent his upperclassman days. Therefore, the building would have the word museum appended to its name, John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, after President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963, his family and friends discussed how to construct a library that would serve as a fitting memorial. A committee was formed to advise Kennedys widow Jacqueline, who would make the final decision, the group deliberated for months, and visited with architects from around the world including Pietro Belluschi and others from the United States, Brazils Lucio Costa, and Italys Franco Albini. Mrs. Kennedy and others met with the candidates together at the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis, Massachusetts, the committee also conducted a secretive process whereby the architects voted anonymously for the most capable of their colleagues.

Kennedy announced that a taped oral-history project was to be undertaken for inclusion in the library, the project would feature administration staff, friends, family, and politicians from home and abroad.

Originally projected to consist of interviews with 150 people,178 had agreed to participate, some notable donations include $900,000 handed over to Postmaster General John A. Gronouski on July 9,1964. It was the sum of a campaign encompassing 102 Federal agencies, Gronouski said many of the Federal employee contributions were in the form of a $5 withholding each payday for a period of three years. The next day the Indian ambassador to the United States, Braj Kumar Nehru, presented Black with a check for $100,000 during a ceremony at the River Club.

Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
23. John F. Kennedy Eternal Flame – The John F. Kennedy Eternal Flame is a presidential memorial at the gravesite of U. S. President John F. Kennedy, in Arlington National Cemetery. The permanent site replaced a temporary grave and eternal flame used during President Kennedys funeral on November 25,1963, the site was designed by architect John Carl Warnecke, a long-time friend of President Kennedys. The permanent John F. Kennedy Eternal Flame grave site was consecrated and opened to the public on March 15,1967, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Friday, November 22,1963. Initial press reports indicated that President Kennedy would be buried at Holyhood Cemetery in Brookline, Massachusetts, but the site for the Presidents grave was quickly changed to the hillside just below Arlington House. The site was chosen because the President and his friend, architect John Carl Warnecke, happened to visit the site in March 1963, the initial suggestion to bury President Kennedy at Arlington appears to have been made by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy agreed to the change, on Sunday, November 24,1963, Jacqueline Kennedy requested an eternal flame for her husbands grave. According to several published accounts, she drew inspiration from a number of sources, one was the eternal flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, which she and her husband had seen during a visit to France in 1961. She also took inspiration from the novel The Candle in the Wind and her brother-in-law, Sargent Shriver, counseled against an eternal flame, worried that it might appear ostentatious or that it would compete with other such memorials at Arlington National Cemetery. The Presidents funeral was set for Monday, November 25 and this left very little time to manufacture and install an eternal flame. The Corps also installed a gas line to a propane tank 200 yards away to feed the torch, a mound of evergreens was placed around the base of the flame to cover the tubing and torch mechanism, and the head of the grave dug in front of the flame. The grave was set in a plot of grass roughly 5 yards on each side, the site was about halfway up the hill on which Arlington House stands. The grave was placed so that it had a view of the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument, Jacqueline Kennedy lit a taper from a candle held by a nearby soldier, and then brought the eternal flame to life at the end of the burial service. The presidents brothers, Robert F. Kennedy and Edward M. Kennedy, on the evening of November 26, the site was surrounded by a white picket fence. The fencing covered an expanded area 30 feet long by 20 feet wide, the enlarged site was due to the wish of Mrs. Kennedy to inter her two deceased children next to their father. She had read that President Abraham Lincoln had been buried next to his son, Willie Lincoln. The two caskets were flown to Washington, D. C. accompanied by Mrs. Auchincloss, a small white cross was placed at the head of the daughters grave, and a small white headstone placed at the head of Patrick Kennedys grave. During the funeral, flowers were laid on the hillside above the grave, after the erection of the fence, flowers were placed inside the enclosure, leaning against the uphill side of the fence. A canvas-covered circular wooden walkway was built from Sheridan Drive to the site to give members of the public access to the graveJohn F. Kennedy Eternal Flame – John F.

A flood in Lowes Lexington Avenue workshop 10 days before the wedding ruined Onassis bridal gown and 9 of the bridal-party dresses, the designer and her staff worked through eight days to reconstruct the gowns and get them delivered on time. Instead of an estimated $700 profit, Lowe lost $2,200 on the projectWedding dress of Jacqueline Bouvier – Wedding dress of Jacqueline Bouvier
25. Bouffant – A bouffant /buːˈfɒnt/ is a type of hairstyle characterized by hair raised high on the head and usually covering the ears or hanging down on the sides. The English word bouffant comes from the French bouffante, from the present participle of bouffer, the bouffant was a mainstream hairstyle in the mid-to-late 18th century in western Europe. It was thought to be created for Marie Antoinette, as she had relatively thin hair, the style became popular at the beginning of the 1960s when First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was often photographed with her hair in a bouffant, and her style was widely imitated. Hair on the top of the head was raised by backcombing or teasing it with a comb to create a pile of tangled, loosely knotted hair on the top and upper sides of the head. In some cases, a small wiglet or a cushion of nylon mesh might be used instead of or in addition to teasing to add height at the crown of the head. Bangs might be worn over the forehead, or a switch or fall of artificial hair, matching the wearers own hair color. Usually, hair spray or hair lacquer was applied as a touch to stiffen the hairdo. Since the hair could not be brushed without ruining the style, women needing to make small adjustments used the long, pompadour Beehive Big hair Hairstyle archives Beauty and the Bouffant galleryBouffant – Lady Bird Johnson wearing a bouffant.
26. Pillbox hat – A pillbox hat is a small hat, usually worn by women, with a flat crown, straight, upright sides, and no brim. It is named after the small cylindrical or hexagonal cases that used to be sold in. Historically, the precursor to the hat was military headgear.

A similar hat was popular with the Flemish in the Middle Ages, in some countries, especially those of the Commonwealth of Nations, a pillbox-like cab, often with a chin strap, can still be seen on ceremonial occasions. For example, the Royal Military College of Canada dress uniform includes such a hat, another cap called a kilmarnock is a modern version of the traditional headdress worn by members of virtually all Gurkha regiments. The modern womans pillbox hat was invented by milliners in the 1930s, Pillbox hats were made out of wool, velvet, organdy, mink, lynx or fox fur, and leopard skin, among many other materials. They were generally designed in solid colors and were unaccesorized, the popularity of the hat declined after that. Pillbox hats are satirically mentioned in the song Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat by Bob Dylan, the song first appeared on his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. Pillbox hats are also mentioned in the song Long Time by Cake on the 2011 album Showroom of Compassion, bell-boy hat Pillbox Notes Media related to Pillbox hats at Wikimedia CommonsPillbox hat – Jackie Kennedy arriving in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963
27. Pink Chanel suit of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy – A pink Chanel suit was worn by Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy on November 22,1963, when her husband, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Made of wool bouclé, the double-breasted, strawberry pink and navy trim collared suit was matched with a matching pink pillbox hat. Jacqueline Kennedy was an icon, and this outfit is arguably the most referenced and revisited of all of her items of clothing. During this era it became the staple of the upwardly mobile American female which could fit almost every daytime occasion that required a woman to dress stylishly. Before John F. Kennedy departed for Dallas he asked his wife what she planned to wear, in an interview with William Manchester after the tragedy, Kennedy said that her husband had told her, There are going to be all these rich, Republican women at that lunch. Wearing mink coats and diamond bracelets, and youve got to look as marvelous as any of them. Be simple – show these Texans what good taste really is, so she tramped in and out of his room, holding dresses in front of her. It was said that the suit was one of her husbands particular favorites. The suit was double-breasted, with six buttons and four square pockets. The fabric was a light weight wool from Wilton Mills in a nubby weave known as boucle, the wide collar and the piping trim on the sleeves and at the top of each pocket, was navy blue silk. The suit came with a sleeveless navy silk shell blouse, for cool weather Kennedy would wear a matching navy silk scarf knotted at the neck and tucked into the front of the jacket, which she did in Dallas. Accompanying the suit was a trademark pillbox hat in matching pink with a band of navy piping around the crown, Kennedy carried a navy handbag with gold buckle and gold chain handle. She wore low heeled shoes with a small gold ornament at the toe. A gold bangle bracelet on her left wrist and short white kid leather gloves with tiny wrist buttons completed her outfit. The color of the suit became widely known only after the publication of photos in Life magazines JFK memorial issue November 29,1963. A number of sources claimed it was more likely a copy of a Chanel pink bouclé wool suit trimmed with a navy blue collar. Further complicating the matter was the fact that the First Ladys official designer was Oleg Cassini who provided much of her public as well as private wardrobe. Picardie insists this system had nothing to do with forgery or trademark infringement, the suit in 1963 was estimated to cost $800 to $1,000Pink Chanel suit of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy – Pink Chanel suit of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy

By the time of President Kennedys tragic assassination in 1963 the Rose Garden had been finished to completion, rachel Lambert Mellon created a space with a more defined central lawn, bordered by flower beds planted in a French style, but largely using American botanical specimens. The present garden follows a layout established by Mellon, each flower bed is planted with a series of Littleleaf lindens and Kennedy saucer magnolias bordered by low hedges of boxwood and American Holly. The outer edge of the bed facing the central lawn are edged with boxwood.

There is a 1. 58-mile jogging track around it and it is encircled by the parks bridle trail. Bill Clinton, Madonna, and Mrs. Onassis have all run the track and it is often visited by tourists, especially when its double pink Yoshino cherries, followed by Prunus serrulata Kanzan cherries, are blooming. The rhododendrons along the Rhusododendron Mile were a gift to the city from Mrs Russell Sage in 1909. The reservoir was built between 1858 and 1862, to the design for Central Park of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux and it was never a collecting reservoir, it replaced the smaller, nearby receiving reservoir. It received water from the Croton Aqueduct and distributed it to Manhattan, though deemed obsolete it remained a part of the NYC water supply and it was intended to be used to supplement the citys upstate water supply in drought emergencies. Papers were signed to allow for the transfer of the reservoir in 1999 from the Department of Environmental Protection to the Department of Parks and Recreation. The year 1999 was chosen because it is the completion date for a filtration plant at the Jerome Reservoir in the Bronx. The Jerome Water Filtration Plant was activated in 2015, concern about the reservoirs future grew in spring 1992, many people worried that the city would put turf over it as was done in the 1920s, when the adjacent Lower Reservoir was deemed obsolete. Today the Great Lawn rests on that reservoirs former site, an 1875 map of Central Park clearly shows the two reservoirs. comJacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir
