The image of JFK's Camelot administration, with its energetic young leader and iconic wife, is often thought to stem from the vision of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
Schlesinger joined Senator Kennedy’s 1960 campaign as an advisor and speechwriter, and was named Special Assistant to the President the following year. After President Kennedy’s assassination, Schlesinger led a successful academic life and published many award-winning books.
