Jacqueline Kennedy's Emmy Award
Slide Description

Affectionately known as the Emmy, this award was presented to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy for her television tour of the White House that aired on CBS in February of 1962. A statuette of a winged woman holding an atom became the symbol of the TV Academy's goal of supporting and uplifting the arts and science of television: the wings represent the muse of art; the atom the electron of science.
