To mark John F. Kennedy’s centennial, celebrate the life and legacy of the 35th President of the United States. A selection of more than 300 images–including family letters, personal ephemera, and captivating photographs–collected by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, many never seen before, featuring the beloved and revered Kennedy family: This remarkable history dates from 1878 through 1946–up to the aftermath of WWII and the beginning of JFK’s political career–and covers everything from the family’s first home to beach vacations, from children’s birthdays to first Communions. The images capture the formative years of a uniquely American dynasty, imparting a glowing nostalgia to the period and detailing the family’s progress as it grows from a pair of turn-of-the-century newlyweds into a populous, vibrant clan of hopeful young men and women on the brink of their brilliant destinies. This is a piece of Americana that readers will treasure.
