Honoring the Birthday of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy: First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy—Style Icon or Cold Warrior?

Noted for her style and grace in the soaring triumphs and the crushing tragedies of JFK's presidency, Jaqueline Kennedy not only created a model for modern First Ladies through her fashion and projects in the White House but mastered the production of political symbols that resonated at home and abroad in the midst of the Cold War. In this presentation, Barbara A. Perry will explore how Camelot endures in public memory and what it owes to Mrs. Kennedy's imagination.

Dr. Colleen Shogan, Senior Vice President and Director of the David M. Rubenstein Center, will moderate the Q&A Discussion.
