In the spirit of Father’s Day, we’re posting family pics of presidential dads. Here, a very Kennedy Christmas in 1962.
President John F. Kennedy celebrates Christmas with family and friends at the residence of Captain Michael Paul in Palm Beach, Florida. (L-R): Caroline Kennedy; unidentified child; First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy holding her nephew Anthony Radziwill; John F. Kennedy, Jr.; President Kennedy; Prince Stanislaus Radziwill of Poland; Princess Lee Radziwill (Mrs. Kennedy’s sister) holding her daughter Anna Christina Radziwill. Also included are two of the Kennedy family’s dogs, Clipper and Charlie.
Happy Father’s Day! To kick off the coming weekend of celebrating dads, we’ll be posting photos through Sunday that reveal our presidents as fathers and sons.
First up, here’s Herbert Hoover with son, Herbert Jr. at a railway station in Cairo, Egypt, circa 1905.
