JACQUELINE KENNEDY, HISTORIC CONVERSATIONS: SEVENTH CONVERSATION XX

Knoxville, Tennessee (JFK+50) Today JFK+50 continues our report on the seventh conversation from “Jacqueline Kennedy, Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy,” published by Hyperion.



The seventh conversation was recorded on June 3, 1964.

Arthur Schlesinger asks Jacqueline Kennedy:

“What place relaxed him most, do you think, of the various places you went?”

Mrs. Kennedy answers:

“It was really the boat that relaxed him most…& the reason for that was, there was no telephone.  He was awful about the phone.  It could….ring but he wouldn’t answer it.”

Mrs. Kennedy goes on to say that JFK was perfectly happy sitting out on the boat in the freezing cold & “thought everyone (else) would love the boat because that was his away from care.”

She continues….

“(Jack) loved the sun & the water & no phone.  And….(he) always had friend there….he never used the boat for working.”*

*Mrs. Kennedy mentions JFK’s father’s boat the “Marlin” & the “Honey Fitz”.
