John F Kennedy- 95

The youngest elected President was born ninety-five years ago on May 29, 1917. John Fitzgerald Kennedy as senator visited Reedsburg during the 1960 Primary Campaign. On March 9, 1960, a reception was held at the Badger Theater. About 150 people turned out according to the Reedsburg Times Press. Our historical photographic collection includes images of the Senator and Mrs. Kennedy visit to Reedsburg. The Kennedy Family has been the feature of many books, check out our display of books. We know the family for their wealth, glamour and photogenic quality of the family members, as well as their extensive and continuing commitment to public service, which elevated them to iconic status over the past half-century.
