Remembering President Kennedy 60 Years On
President John Fitzgerald Kennedy's assassination sixty years ago brought a sudden and tragic end to an administration that had been driven by the promise of a new generation of leadership. At that time, John Kenneth Galbraith and Earl Warren were principal figures in our national government: Galbraith was a longtime friend and close advisor to President Kennedy and Ambassador to India. Warren was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and a personal friend with the President.St. Helena is fortunate to claim both Galbraith's son, former St. Helena Mayor Alan Galbraith, and Warren's grandson, Jeffrey Earl Warren. They have been St. Helena neighbors for nearly twenty years. Today, the two men are here to share their relatives' stories and private insights into the Kennedy Administration and describe how President Kennedy's contributions to America stay with us today. Our moderator in this discussion is John Oliver Wilson. Dr. Wilson is well known locally for heading the Great Decisions program at Rianda House for ten years. Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association.
