February 26, 1953 (Thursday)
JFK lunched at his ever favorite time of 1:15 pm with his long-time aide Ted Sorenson and University of Wisconsin Professor Jack Barbash, an economist who was influential in the merger of the AFL and CIO in 1955, in the Senate dining room.
Kennedy throughout his career resisted the label of Liberal. However, he represented a district that had a large working class population and tended his labor constituency with care.
At 6:30 he had cocktails at the National Foundry Association event at the Statler Hotel and at 8:00 pm attended a dinner hosted by Lady Darby.
