For decades, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy (1890-1995) gathered and treasured an ever-growing trove of family memorabilia. This selection, which encompasses hundreds of previously unpublished images, covers almost seven decades, from before Rose's own birth to the aftermath of World War II, in which she lost one of her nine children. Thus, it gives a rare view into the lives of not only Rose, but also her patriarch/diplomat husband Joseph Kennedy and her children, including future president John and future senators Robert and Ted. Granddaughter Caroline Kennedy provides an detailed introduction to this fascinating gathering on one of America's first families.
