White House Buck Deer

Note the taxidermy in the background.

Jackie gave birth five-and-a-half weeks prior to this photo shoot.

There’s nothing Southern about the Kennedys, but both Jackie O. and JFK oozed frattiness, class, and a certain American wholesomeness that seems somehow consistent with the Southern way of life (at least sartorially). So, I thought it worth mentioning that the American Museum of Natural History in DC just opened a small exhibit featuring never-before-seen photos of the First Family of the Sixties, taken by Richard Avedon as the Kennedys entered the White House 50 years ago on January 3. The photo collection will remain on view through February.
