    John Fitzgerald Kennedy, often known as JFK or Jack, was the 35th President of the United States.  Kennedy, a Massachussetts Democrat from a wealthy family, was well known for his iconic speeches, particularly his inaugural address.  His Presidency was notable for his foreign policy, which was mostly directed toward the threat posed by the Soviet Union, leading to the escalation of the Cold War with incidents like the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the beginnings of the war in Vietnam.  Kennedy's domestic policies revolved around civil rights issues, and the goal he stated early in his presidency to land a man on the moon.  On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald.

    Kennedy, a pop culture icon, was famous for his interest in and relationships with women.  He was linked to Marilyn Monroe, among many others, both prior to and during his marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.  While enrolled and auditing classes at Stanford Graduate School of Business he met Harriet "Flip" Price.  JFK and Harriet dated very seriously during his time at Stanford.  He introduced Harriet to his mother, Rose, and she took him on a trip to the Arizona desert.  Their relationship ended when he enlisted in the Navy and went overseas to serve in World War II.
