The second of nine children born to Joseph and Rose Kennedy and the great-grandson of eight Irish immigrants, John Fitzgerald Kennedy is best known for his time as the 35th President of the United States. A graduate of Harvard, JFK served in World War II and worked for a brief time as a reporter before becoming a Democratic Congressman from Boston in 1947. Over the next ten years he became a Senator, married Jacqueline Bouvier, had three children, and wrote a Pulitzer Prize winning book called Profiles in Courage. In 1960, JFK beat Richard Nixon to become the youngest U.S. president ever elected. During his three years in office, Kennedy promoted social legislation along with Civil Rights reform, formed the Peace Corps, and oversaw resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis. On November 22, 1963 John F. Kennedy's life was tragically cut short by an assassin's bullet, while riding in a Presidential motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
