  • Description

    President Elect John Kennedy arrived at the Georgetown Hospital, Washington DC during the night of Nov 24/25 and there saw the son born to his wife by Caesarean birth a few hours earlier.

    Kennedy was on his way back to a vacation in Palm Beach Florida, after spending Thanksgiving with his wife at their home in the fashionable suburb of Georgetown in the nations capital, when the news was flashed to Palm Beach Airport that Mrs. Kennedy had been taken to hospital. A telephone line was kept open, and Kennedy talked to Washington immediately after landing. The plane was quickly refueled, and Kennedy left again for Washington. It was while travelling back that a radio telephone message was sent to him in the plane telling him of a birth of a son.
