Notes & Transcripts

John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born to Joseph P. and Rose Kennedy, the second of nine children.  The Kennedy family provided young John with an environment in which his dark side would not only develop but also flourish and be encouraged.  Clare Booth Luce, wife of the famous publishing magnate Henry Luce, once described the Kennedy family as one in which there was “ambition and pride and human wreckage, such dedication to the best and lapses into the mire of life; such vulgar, noble, driven, generous, self-centered, loving suspicious, devious , honorable, vulnerable, indomitable people.”
