Bab Beckwith with a New York model who dated JFK when he was stationed in Miami in early 1944. She was not his only date in Miami but his friends at the time remember that he really the tall, brown-eyed beauty. His Navy buddy Nick Nikoloric recalled to another biographer,
There was a perfectly gorgeous girl down there…. a very well-known model. You should have seen Jack going after her. A continuing campaign with flowers, candy, dinner. She told me a very strange thing, too. One night she invited him to her place. She was feeling dreamy and romantically inclined. There was champagne.
