After the shock of hearing the news of the assassination of President Kennedy, America and the world had gone into mourning, holding memorial services, silent vigils, torchlight parades - and there were words; not just from politicians and statesmen, but from ordinary people; people who felt they had to say something, people who felt they had to write something down; and people who were moved to send their words of condolences to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and to tell her how much her husband had meant to them. Those letters reflect the impact of John Kennedy's life and death on America and the world. In this program, you'll hear some of those letters and meet some of the people who wrote them, some of those who processed them for the First Lady, and those who continue to curate them.
Jacqueline Lee Kennedy Onassis, wife of the 35th President of the United States John F. Kennedy, First Lady of the United States from 1961 until his assassination in 1963, wife of shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, nicknamed by the paparazzi as Jackie O (July 28, 1929 - May 19, 1994) was born in Southampton, New York as Jacqueline Lee Bouvier. Bouvier was the elder daughter of Wall Street stockbroker John Vernou Bouvier III and socialite Janet Lee Bouvier. In 1951, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French literature from George Washington University and went on to work for the Washington Times-Herald as an inquiring photographer. In 1952, Bouvier met Congressman John F. Kennedy at a dinner party. That November, he was elected as a United States Senator from Massachusetts, and the couple married the following year. They had four children, two of whom died in infancy. As First Lady of the United States, she was known for her highly publicized restoration of the White House and her emphasis on arts and culture. She was the first Catholic to become First Lady. On November 22, 1963, she was riding with the President in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, when he was assassinated. After his funeral, she and her children withdrew from public view. She married Aristotle Onassis, one of the world's richest men, in 1968. Following her second husband's death in 1975, she had a career as a book editor for the final two decades of her life. Jacqueline Lee Kennedy Onassis died on May 19, 1994 at 10:15 p.m. in her sleep in her Manhattan apartment at age 64, with her children by her side. In the morning, her son John F. Kennedy, Jr. announced his mother's death to the press, stating that she had been "surrounded by her friends and her family and her books, and the people and the things that she loved". He added that "She did it in her very own way, and on her own terms, and we all feel lucky for that." On May 23, 1994, her funeral Mass was held a few blocks away from her apartment at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, the Catholic parish where she was baptized in 1929 and confirmed as a teenager and asked for no cameras to film the event for privacy. She was interred at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, alongside President Kennedy, their son Patrick, and their stillborn daughter Arabella. President Bill Clinton delivered a eulogy at her graveside service. She is remembered for her lifelong contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, as well as for her style, elegance, and grace. She was a fashion icon, and her famous ensemble of pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat has become a symbol of her husband's assassination. She ranks as one of the most popular First Ladies and was named in 1999 on Gallup's list of Most Admired Men and Women in 20th-century America.
