Overview

One of the most influential families in American history, the Kennedys have had their lives documented by the media for the past 50 years. The Kennedys: America's Front-Page Family tells the story of this fascinating family through a collection of newspaper front pages gathered from the archives of The Poynter Institute.

From the political rise and assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the final accomplishments and passing of Senator Ted Kennedy, nothing paints a clearer and timelier picture of these historic events than the stories written by the writers and editors of the world's newspapers. A few of the events that are featured include JFK's declaration for the presidency, JFK's "man on the moon" address, the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missle Crisis, Robert Kennedy's assasination, JFK Jr.'s plane crash, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's marriage, and Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Barack Obama during the 2008 election.
