JACQUELINE KENNEDY ONASSIS PORTRAYED BY JILL LAWRENCE
She was a Kennedy. She was an Onassis. She did not define herself by her husbands.
As a young mother she was catapulted onto the World Stage when her husband John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States. Realizing that future generations would need the insights of the past for guidance, her preservation efforts galvanized the rest of the country to protect its historic monuments. Aided by her public profile, her work helped bring about the Historic Preservation Act of 1966: the most far-reaching preservation legislation ever enacted in the United States.
Meet Jacqueline! A great American Legacy who wore many hats, not just her pillbox.
