As a high school student, Jack Kennedy was an underachiever with a rebel streak. But he grew up to be one of the most compelling figures of the twentieth century. More than fifty years after his Presidency ended in tragedy, John F. Kennedy's vision, intellectual intensity, and personal magnetism continue to fire the public imagination.
Visitors to this exhibit will catch glimpses of "Young Jack" as a boy, a student, a decorated war hero, a young man seeking his life's path. Drawn from the collections of the Kennedy Library, the exhibition presents touchstones of JFK's early life.
