John F. Kennedy Library Foundation

Log Number: ST-03-18-0010-18

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum will conserve and digitize 52 family scrapbooks and photograph albums from the president's mother, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, which date from 1878 to 1963, as well as 12,000 additional photographs associated with three generations of the Kennedy family. The scrapbooks and albums consist of formal studio portraits, snapshots, newspaper clippings, and ephemera chosen by Rose Kennedy and other family members. The project will ensure the long-term preservation of these materials and make them accessible to the public through the Library's website. Expanding the Library's digital archives to include family memorabilia will enrich the primary source material available for the study of the Kennedy presidency and a transformative era in American history.
