Pamela Turnure was the White House Assistant Social Secretary for the Press from 1961 until leaving the White House in March of 1964. She remained under the employ of Mrs. Kennedy for a short time when her residence moved to New York in 1964. Turnure had previously worked as a receptionist in the Belgian Embassy where she met Senator John F. Kennedy at the wedding of Jacqueline Kennedy’s stepsister Nina Auchincloss in 1957. Turnure then became a receptionist in John F. Kennedy’s Senate office as well as secretary to Timothy J. Reardon, Senator Kennedy’s Administrative Assistant, before moving to her position in the White House after the 1960 election. This series is arranged into four main sections: event files, foreign trip files, press files, and subject files. Event files are arranged chronologically and relate to the various social events held at the White House or attended by the First Lady. Foreign trip files are also arranged chronologically and document Mrs. Kennedy’s travel outside of the United States in both official and unofficial capacities. Press files are arranged alphabetically and consist of briefings, press releases, and press coverage of the First Lady. Subject files are arranged alphabetically, and are composed of memos, notes, and correspondence relating to topics such as White House redecoration and the Fine Arts Committee, general information on the First Lady and her family, as well as small projects and organizations Mrs. Kennedy was involved in. Please note, files marked with an asterisk (*) were originally part of the White House Social File. For further information please consult the Series 1.1. Staff Files description.
