JFK attends the wedding of old flame Frances Ann Cannon to John Hersey. The ceremony is held at White Oaks, the James B. Duke mansion in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Frances Ann, of the famous textile family, had been a serious girlfriend of Jack Kennedy’s and his family thought they might marry. However, it appears that her family was less enthusiastic about the match (possibly because of religious differences) and reportedly took her on a round the world tour to discourage things.
