Folder Description
This photograph album, likely compiled by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy and/or Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy, documents the activities of the Kennedy family during the years 1925 through 1936. The gold stamped title on the cover reads, “Photographs.” Those pictured include Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., and Rose; their children, Joseph P. “Joe” Kennedy, Jr., John F. “Jack” Kennedy, Rosemary Kennedy, Kathleen, Eunice Kennedy, Patricia “Pat” Kennedy, Robert F. “Bob” Kennedy, Jean Kennedy, and Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy; Rose’s parents, John F. “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald and Mary Josephine Hannon Fitzgerald; her sister, Agnes Fitzgerald; nanny to the Kennedy children, Katherine “Kikoo” Conboy; governess to the Kennedy children, Alice Cahill; family friends and associates, including Edward E. “Eddie” Moore and Mary Moore, Betsey Cushing Roosevelt, and former Governor of New York, Alfred E. Smith; and Kennedy family dog, Bobby. Photographs capture time spent at the family’s primary residence in Bronxville, New York; in Cohasset, Massachusetts, where they rented a cottage near the beach; and at their secondary residences in Palm Beach, Florida, and Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. Of note are photographs of an unidentified nurse holding Ted at Saint Margaret's Hospital in Dorchester, Massachusetts, five days after his birth; a visit to the Ostrich-Alligator Farm & Zoo in Lantana, Palm Beach County, Florida; views of the Kennedy family home in Palm Beach; boxing matches at the Sea Spray Club in Palm Beach, in which Bob and Ted participated; Eunice and Eddie Moore fishing in Palm Beach; Joe, Jr., dressed in drag with classmates at Harvard University; and family members and friends participating in both warm-weather and cold-weather outdoor activities. Many leaves contain original handwritten captions in white ink, in two different hands, although the handwriting does not belong to Rose or Kathleen, and the writers have not been determined. This photograph album contains 93 photographic prints and two photograph fragments.
