Gallery Talk - 1960 Campaign Wives at Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Mrs. Nixon and Mrs. Kennedy both supported their husbands as they campaigned for president but did so in very different ways. Mrs. Nixon accompanied her husband everywhere and he referred to her in almost every speech. Mrs. Kennedy hated campaigning and avoided it when possible – aided in part by her pregnancy. We will explore these two unique women and their personalities through lm clips from the campaign trail as well as 1960 magazines and photographs from the Museum’s collections.
