JFK’s Desk

Remember how John-John played under JFKs desk? Now you can too!

Well, not under it, exactly, but you can click on stuff and explore it virtually. Almost as much fun, eh?

The JFK Library recently launched the interactive desktop to get a feel for the era. Flip through photo albums of adorable children and sublime adults. Listen to some of JFKs recorded phone calls. So much history!

My favorite is the recording of Sinatra singing new campaign lyrics to “High Hopes.” To find it, click on the campaign button on the desk, then click on the record hanging on the wall.

Yes, Children, back then everyone thumbtacked their records to the wall. That’s a trend I’m expecting to come back, by the way.

What was your favorite piece of JFK memorabilia? What’s your favorite period in history?
