Today is the anniversary of the birth of Jacqueline Bouvier, born in 1929, and destined to marry the 35th president of the United States John F. Kennedy. Mrs. Kennedy once said that: "People have told me 99 things that I had to do as First Lady and I haven't done one of them." Jacqueline Kennedy may not have done what others wanted but what she did achieve had an impact and is still remembered. Her efforts to restore the White House transformed it and preserved the character of the surrounding neighborhood. Her fashion choices were copied worldwide (such as the pillbox hat pictured here) and her dignity and resolve in the wake of her husband's assassination endeared and her children to the American people. Jacqueline Kennedy's wide-ranging conversations with historian Arthur Schlesinger about her live in the White House are catalogued at the John F. Kennedy Library.
