Camelot Rises Again

Filed under: Kennedy Administration,White House — Peter Arnold

john kennedyJim Cicconi, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff and AT&T’s senior executive vice president, just posted this wonderful blog about the new online John F. Kennedy Presidential Library archives, launched to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the President’s inauguration.  (Disclosure: Yes, I’ve worked for Jim for more than a decade.)  Anyone interested in Presidential history should be as fascinated by these digitized records as Charles Darwin was by the Galapagos.

Even if the most famous line in JFK’s repertoire wasn’t quite an original, there is still an amazing amount of information online.  My favorite so far: the recorded call between Presidents Kennedy and Eisenhower on October 22, 1962, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

So spend some time on the site and prepare to be amazed at how quickly a few minutes can turn into hours.
