Jacqueline Lee Bouvier at age 16 playing with the camera. She was to become the most photographed woman of her generation. History records Jackie Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) the wife of the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and served as First Lady during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. She was later married to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis from 1968 until his death in 1975. In later years she had a successful career as a book editor. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and historic preservation, her style and elegance, and her public stoicism in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination.
Robert Kennedy on the campaign trail , 1968. Had he not been assassinated (while leading the polls) and gone on to become president, then who knows what the world would look like today? Robert united several generations of Americans. Nixon–who won essentially by default–was to become the most divisive president up to that time…many consider the double assassination of the Kennedy brothers as a key turning point in modern history…not just for America but for the whole world.

Adorable. And playfully sexist.
Sort of brings back memories of reading ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ Where is the wolf? She definitely wants a wolf…
