John F. Kennedy
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, or JFK, was the 35th President of the United States, serving from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Born in Brookline, Massachusetts on May 29, 1917, Kennedy came from a politically prominent family and had a privileged upbringing. He attended Harvard University and served in the Navy during World War II, earning the Purple Heart and other honors for his bravery. Kennedy's political career began in 1947 when he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. He went on to serve as a Senator from Massachusetts, where he gained a reputation for his eloquent speeches and his progressive stance on civil rights and social issues. In 1960, Kennedy won the Democratic nomination for president, defeating Richard Nixon in a closely contested election. As president, Kennedy worked to improve the economy, expand social programs, and promote civil rights. He also played a key role in the Cold War, negotiating with the Soviet Union and defusing the Cuban Missile Crisis. Despite his short time in office, Kennedy's legacy is enduring. He inspired a generation with his vision of a more just and equitable society, and his tragic death only served to cement his place in history. Today, JFK is remembered as one of America's greatest presidents, and his accomplishments continue to inspire and shape the nation.

For fifty years I have been a Document Examiner and that is how I earn my living. For over 50 years I have also been a publicist for actors, singers, writers, composers, artists, comedians, and many progressive non-profit organizations. I am a Librettist-Composer of a Broadway musical called, "Nellie Bly" and I am in the process of making small changes to it. In addition, I have written over 100 songs that would be considered "popular music" in the genre of THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK.
My family consists of four branches. The Norwegians and The Italians and the Norwegian-Americans and the Italian Americans.

I'm a Founder of AncientFaces and support the community answering questions & helping members make connections to the past (thus my official title of Founder & Content and Community Support ). For me, it's been a labor of love for over 20 years. I truly believe with all of my heart that everyone should be remembered for generations to come. I am 2nd generation San Jose and have seen a lot of changes in the area while growing up. We used to be known as the "Valley of Heart's Delight" (because the Valley was covered with orchards and there were many canneries to process the food grown here, which shipped all over the US) - now we have adopted the nickname "Capital of Silicon Valley" and Apple, Ebay, Adobe, Netflix, Facebook, and many more tech companies are within a few miles of my current home in San Jose (including AncientFaces). From a small town of 25,000, we have grown to 1 million plus. And when you add in all of the communities surrounding us (for instance, Saratoga, where I attended high school, living a block from our previous Mayor), we are truly one of the big cities in the US. I am so very proud of my hometown. For more information see Kathy - Founder & Content and Community Director
My family began AncientFaces because we believe that unique photos and stories that show who people are/were should be shared with the world.
