The Camelot Era: The term "Camelot" came to be used retrospectively as iconic of the Kennedy administration, and the charisma of Kennedy and his family. The term was first publicly used by his wife Jacqueline Kennedy in a post-assassination Life magazine interview with Theodore H. White, in which she revealed his affection for the contemporary Broadway musical of the same name, particularly the closing lines of the title song: "Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief, shining moment that was known as Camelot. There'll be great presidents again ... but there will never be another Camelot." On television, this era was represented by Mary Tyler Moore's Dick Van Dyke Show character Laura Petrie, who would often dress like Kennedy's wife Jackie as well. The Inauguration Of John F. Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States was held on Friday, January 20, 1961, at the East Portico of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.. Kennedy placed his hand on the Fitzgerald family Bible (his mother's family) published by Virtue, Emmins and Roberts, London and New York in 1850, closed (not open to a chapter or verse), when he recited the oath. This was the 44th inauguration and marked the commencement of the only term of both John F. Kennedy as President and Lyndon B. Johnson as Vice President. Kennedy was assassinated 2 years, 306 days into this term, and Johnson succeeded to the presidency. Kennedy took office following the November 1960 presidential election, in which he narrowly defeated Richard Nixon, the incumbent Vice President. He was the first Catholic to become President, became the youngest person elected to the office and the first president born in the 20th century. His inaugural address encompassed the major themes of his campaign and would define his presidency during a time of economic prosperity, emerging social changes, and diplomatic challenges. This inauguration was the first in which a poet, Robert Frost, participated in the program. For this inauguration, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies was chaired by Senator John Sparkman, and included Senators Carl Hayden and Styles Bridges, and Representatives Sam Rayburn, John W. McCormack, and Charles A. Halleck.
