Jackie Through the Ages: Slideshow

By Jennie Cohen
In early 1964, just months after her husband’s assassination, a grieving Jacqueline Kennedy spoke for hours with historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., describing her time in the White House and offering her take on political figures and events. Audio recordings of these interviews and a book entitled “Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy” will be released this week some 47 years later. We take a look at the life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis—wife, mother, first lady, fashion icon, preservationist and arts patron—in this series of photographs.
