Original name: Jacqueline Bouvier

New York, USA
Death: May 19, 1994

Presidential First Lady. Wife of 35th United States President John F. Kennedy. She served as First Lady from January 20, 1961 to November 22, 1963. She was a daughter of John Vernou Bouvier, III and his wife, Janet Lee. Her early years were divided between New York City and East Hampton. When in her early teens, her mother remarried Hugh D Auchincloss and the family moved to to his home near Washington, D.C. spending the summers at Newport, Rhode Island. While dubbed "the Debutante of the Year" for the 1947-1948 season, she continued her education at Vassar spending her junior year in France and graduating from George Washington University. She would always hold a high regardfor the French people and their customs. Her marriage to John F. Kennedy in 1953 attracted nationwide publicity. She now had to take on a new role as wife of one of the most energetic political figures. She brought both style, culture and intellect to the White House and the popularity she enjoyed with her husband led to their time there being known as Camelot. While she considered her husband and children her major responsibilities, she also devoted much time to making the White House an historical museum of American History as well as an elegant family residence. The courage she showed following the tragedy of her husband's assassination gained her the respect of the world. She moved to New York City and was married to Aristotle Onassis in 1968. After his death in 1975 she worked as an editor for Doubleday. At her funeral her son described three of her attributes: "love of words, the bonds of home and family, and her spirit of adventure." (bio by: D C McJonathan-Swarm)
