ByAnn Mah June 23, 2019 In August 1949, a 20-year-old Jacqueline Bouvier arrived in France and began a year that would change her life. Before her marriages to Jack and Aristotle, before the glamour and the tragedy, before she lived in the White House or worked at a publishing house, she was a college student boarding a ship to spend her junior year abroad in Paris. With her French name and heritage (one-eighth French from her father’s side), she was already predisposed to admiring France. But the academic year of 1949 to 1950 cemented her passion, allowing her … [Read more...] about A Year in Paris That Transformed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

BROOKLINE, Mass. — The National Park Service is marking two Kennedy milestones this week. On Wednesday, events are planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site at JFK's boyhood home in Brookline. That same day would have been the slain president's 102nd birthday. Organizers say a special commemoration will be held starting at 10 a.m. with the theme, "What JFK means to me." At 2 p.m., presidential biographers Fredrik Logevall, David Nasaw and Barbara Perry will participate in a panel discussion examining the legacy of the nation's 35th president. The park service leads tours of the house where the Kennedy family began its rise to national prominence. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. … [Read more...] about JFK’s legacy re-examined as 2 Kennedy milestones are marked
Matthew Dolan and David Jesse Detroit Free Press Published 8:00 AM EDT Mar 20, 2019 The description of the proposed investment by the University of Michigan read like the fine print few people can fully comprehend. U-M's elected leaders voted in December 2017 to pour as much as $130 million into a new fund to target "mining, distressed opportunities, operating businesses, and commodities or production inputs that exhibit attractive upside potential due to valuation dislocations, transactional complexities, or supply and demand imbalances." Even with all those words, there may have been a surprising ingredient still missing: Bourbon. Records and interviews show the fund's managers at a Canadian private-equity firm are behind a new bourbon operation in Kentucky. Known as IJW Whiskey, the low-profile company has already erected large warehouses in Danville to store the corn-based, barrel-aged whiskey used to make bourbon and have … [Read more...] about University of Michigan investing in Kentucky bourbon?
There’s no question Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was an icon of style. That’s why these style hacks that came straight from the woman, herself are brilliant and yet almost shockingly intuitive. But it turns out Jackie had an eighth brilliant hack for stepping out in style, which has only come to light with the publishing of her former assistant’s memoir, Jackie’s Girl: My Life with the Kennedy Family.Kathy McKeon served as Jackie’s assistant from 1964 (when, as McKeon puts it, “the shock of President Kennedy’s assassination was still fresh”) through 1977 (two years after Jackie became a widow for the second time, having re-married to Aristotle Onassis in 1968). “I couldn’t know… mere days into my new job, how thoroughly I would be swept up into this most royal of American families,” McKeon writes in her prologue, and that included getting to know a very intimate fact about Mrs. Kennedy/Onassis: one of the … [Read more...] about The weird thing Jackie Kennedy did to every single pair of her shoes
