Jacqueline Kennedy: American Icon
Jacqueline Kennedy, who reinvented the role of First Lady and whose style, glamour, and courage helped to define an era, chose not to speak publicly about those years. In virtually the only print interview she gave (to Look Magazine in 1963) shortly after her husband was assassinated, she literally did define the era, likening her husband's presidency to Camelot; it was a comparison that caught the imagination of a nation in mourning. When she died in 1994 without having written her memoirs or consented to be interviewed for a documentary, it appeared that her insights were lost to history forever.
But though she didn't want to speak publically, she wanted to leave behind a record for history. So just four months after the death of her husband, she sat down for a series of recorded interviews with historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. For 8 and a half hours, she spoke about her husband, her family, and the explosive historic events of those 1000 days. She left these tapes to her daughter, Caroline Kennedy -- and specified they be released at the appropriate time. (CBS). Mint / Mint Slipcase. Item #1041
