Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy

Jacqueline Lee Bouvier (July 28, 1929 - May 19, 1994) was the wife of John F. Kennedy, the President of the United States, and was thus First Lady of the United States from 1960 to 1963.

She married Kennedy on September 12, 1953, and they had three children: Caroline Bouvier Kennedy[?] (born 1957), John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. (1960 - 1999), and Patrick Bouvier Kennedy (born and died 1963).

John F. Kennedy became President of the United States in 1960, which made Jacqueline the First Lady. She was famous for a television tour of the White House. She was riding with Kennedy when he was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. She later married shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, from whom she was widowed in 1975. She spent the latter part of her life editing books at Doubleday[?] while living in New York City and Martha's Vineyard with Maurice Tempelsman[?], a Belgian-born industrialist and diamond merchant.

On February 14, 1962 then First Lady Kennedy took American television viewers on a tour of the White House.

In 1974 self-proclaimed first amendment activist and Hustler Magazine[?] publisher Larry Flynt released nude photos of the former First Lady, much to her embarrassment and the embarrassment of the Kennedy family.

She died of lymphoma and is buried with her first husband at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
