Folder Description
This scrapbook, compiled by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, contains newspaper clippings from 1938 and 1939 that document a range of activities of the Kennedy family during Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr.’s tenure as United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, when the family lived at the Ambassador's residence at 14 Prince's Gate in London, England. Topics covered by clippings include the coronation of Pope Pius XII in Vatican City, which Ambassador Kennedy attended; the prospect of British involvement in the global conflict that became World War II; Ambassador Kennedy’s opinions on and actions related to the war and other political and economic issues; the arrivals of the Kennedy children in London; and various sporting events and society news. Two loose items found between pages of the scrapbook are a calling card from the U.S. Ambassador to France, William C. Bullitt, and a photograph of an unidentified man standing beside a reindeer with the printed caption, “Lappi/Lappland.” This scrapbook contains 45 newspaper clippings, one calling card, and one photographic print.
