Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. In honor of his life and legacy, here is a collection of articles from The Atlantic on JFK.
- Here Comes Kennedy: Photos of Kennedy’s youth and life leading up to the White House.
- Team of Eggheads: From our February 1961 issue, a look at JFK’s presidential cabinet just after his inauguration.
- Open Office, Open Door: A May 1961 analysis of President Kennedy’s leadership style, the “creative tension” that it inspired in the executive branch, but his failures to excite Congress.
- JFK vs. The Military: How Kennedy faced off a foe more relentless than Khrushchev, just across the Potomac: the bellicose Joint Chiefs of Staff argued for the deployment of nuclear weapons and kept pressing to invade Cuba.
- The Limits of Power: In an issue that went to press just before President Kennedy’s death, The Atlantic described how JFK’s difficulties in influencing events brought gloom to the White House.
- Passing the Torch: President Bill Clinton assesses the civil-rights accomplishments of JFK.
- The Legacy of John F. Kennedy: Historians tend to rate JFK as a good president, not a great one. But Americans consistently give him the highest approval rating of any president since Franklin D. Roosevelt. Why?
