November 22, 2014. JFK 50th Anniversary. Those of us who lived through the Kennedy years,all have our memories of the events. Here's mine. I was 5 years old when JFK was inaugurated. There was a picture of Mrs. Kennedy's Oleg Cassini designed inaugural gown in the newspaper and I did a drawing of it. My Mom sent it to the White House and I got this letter of thanks in return. Full circle moment: As an adult, working at The Franklin Mint, I drew sketches of that same gown for one of our Jackie dolls. Here are both the letter and that later sketch.
