During the first half of 1964, just months after her husband was assassinated, Jacqueline Kennedy sat for seven interviews with historian and family friend Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
Speaking at her home in Washington, D.C., the former first lady discussed her marriage, her White House years, election-year campaigning and her husband’s thoughts about a second term.
The interview is part of what became the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library’s Oral History and, at her request, was kept sealed for an indefinite time. She died in 1994.
Now, with the 50th anniversary of her father’s inauguration coming next year, daughter Caroline Kennedy is allowing the conversations to be widely released.
