Born 29 May 1917: John F. Kennedy

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, often referred to as JFK, was born on May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Massachusetts. The second-youngest person elected President of the United States, he served from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Kennedy’s presidency was defined by the Cold War. He faced tense standoffs with the Soviet Union, most notably the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Despite the challenges, he also championed social progress, establishing the Peace Corps and pushing for racial equality. On November 22, 1963, while riding in a motorcade through Dallas, Texas, John F. Kennedy was assassinated. His death remains a national tragedy and a subject of ongoing debate and conspiracy theories.
