JFK 100: Milestones & Mementos is the title of the exhibition commemorating President Kennedy’s centenary. Featuring a compelling selection of items drawn mostly from the Kennedy Library’s collections, the exhibition chronicles historic milestones in the President’s career, administration, and his personal life. Highlights include items from his childhood and adolescence; a flag from PT 109 (the boat commanded by JFK during World War II); items relating to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and notes in preparation of his landmark address on civil rights. Several items have never before been displayed, including some of JFK’s personal belongings. This special exhibition reflects the arc of President Kennedy’s life—the challenges, burdens, and opportunities of his life and times—as well as the sweep of history over the last century.
