Today marks the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s inauguration as President of the United States.
Readers of this site love to read, learn, and listen……have I got a treat for you!
Want to spend a blissful few hours in Camelot?
As part of the celebration of this significant anniversary, the JFK Library has made the amazing library resources available on the library website as a digital archive. http://www.jfklibrary.org/
Start with the introductory video, http://www.jfk50.org/, and see if you are not as hooked as I am.
Listen to the Inaugural speech, read the daily Oval Office diary, listen to thousands of oral interviews with key players in the JFK administration….get lost in a world that feels, at least to me, not so long ago but very different.
But only visit if you have a few hours……the site is completely addictive!
