Rosemary Kennedy was born September 13, 1918, and died January 7, 2005. In 1941, at the age of 23, her father authorized a lobotomy to be performed on Rosemary to calm her "mood swings". The procedure reduced her to an "infantile state". Publicly she was pronounced to be "mentally handicapped", this sounded better than "failed lobotomy.“ In 1949, she was moved to the St. Coletta School for Exceptional Children in Jefferson, WI. Due to her condition, she became largely detached from her family but she was still visited by her sister, Eunice.

The Kennedy Family ResidenceIan Crawford

Using my background in interior design, I designed a house for the Kennedy Family that will suit there various needs. They are a busy family that is constantly in the public eye. They need a place were they can entertain, but also a private home that they can relax in. I have designed a house in the Academic Colonial Revival Style that has large public entertaining areas, as well as separate private areas to give their home a calm and personal atmosphere.

The Kennedy Family

The Kennedy Family entertains often, and has a level of formality to maintain in their events hosted at home. This house was designed for elegant entertaining but has distinct private areas as well. It gives the family the opportunity to relax in their home and still give visitors and guests the Kennedy lifestyle experience.


Interior Design

Megan Meloy

Being a student in Interior Design, I am constantly faced with the everyday challenge of space planning. The design process for the Kennedy’s demands the need for space, functionality, and formality. With the Kennedy’s being such a large family, their home will accommodate to their wants and needs. Designing a large playroom allows for an outlet for children to play without the entire house being scattered with toys and other miscellaneous objects. With nine children, it is hard for each child to have their own individual rooms. The three eldest children will have their own rooms and the remaining younger six will share rooms. These three shared rooms will be larger and have defined sides for privacy. Large bookcases and shelving will divide the room so each child’s personal space and sleeping areas are left private.


The Kennedy Family

This image is a shared room between Patricia and Jean. They each have their own bed, nightstand with lamp, dresser and mirror, and a long row of shelving a bookcases for personal belongings. The sides are mirror images of each other. The bookcases are a good division because they still have the open aspect of a room yet they still each have their own unique sides to which they can customize to their liking.

at the marriage of Mrs. Auchincloss' daughter

Jacqueline Lee Bouvierto 

The Honorable John Fitzgerald Kennedy

United States Senate

on Saturday, the twelfth of September

at eleven o'clock

Saint Mary's Church

Spring Street

Newport, Rhode Island  

  • On September 12, 1953 they married at St. Mary’s Church in Newport, Rhode Island. Twelve hundred people were invited to the wedding reception at Hammersmith Farm, a place filled with happy memories for Jacqueline of the summers she had spent there with her mother, stepfather, brothers and sisters.
  • The reception was held on the huge terrace of the 300 acre Auchincloss oceanfront estate, Hammersmith Farm, for more than twelve hundred guests.  The wedding cake was over four feet tall. Meyer Davis and his orchestra played under a huge canopy.
  • *The Hospitality Industry could have helped Jackie and JFK by suggesting a more intimate private wedding. By doing this it would have helped keep their personal love life not so public. Having a private family wedding could have offered a more romantic feel and helped keep the marriage secure.

  • President Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy together with their two children, brought a new, youthful spirit to the White House. Jacqueline Kennedy planned important dinners and events at the White House and invited artists, writers, scientists, poets, and musicians to mingle with politicians, diplomats, and statesmen.
  • February 14, 1962 CBS Television asked Mrs. Kennedy to present a televised tour of the newly restored White House. Fifty million Americans watched it on television.  Mrs. Kennedy was honored with an Emmy Award for her hard work.
  • April 29, 1962 Jackie hosted a dinner at the White House for the Nobel Prize winners
  • Spring 1961 Jackie Kennedy brought in Chef Rene Verdon, with his French presence in the kitchen the White House became well known for its superb five course meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

* The Hospitality Industry could help the Kennedys high profile lifestyle by hiring an event planner. By doing this it would help the First ladies to have more time with their family and let the event planner focus on all the event that are held at The White House.

kennedy compound
Kennedy Compound
  • Located in Nantucket Sound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts
  • Built in 1904 and is acquired by six acres on ocean front Cape Cod
  • The home was first bought by Grandfather Joseph Kennedy and was remolded to equip their nine children and later the other generations to come. Two other homes were build around the main house by brothers John and Robert.
  • The house was used for many activities with the family growing up and for entertaining many guests and weddings
  • In 1960 JFK used the compound as a base for his Presidential campaign
  • The compound was also used as a Summer White House and President retreat
  • It is said today that the compound would be transformed into an education center and museum

*The Hospitality Industry could help by promoting the opening of the new education and museum center by having an annual opening party.

In the past we could have helped by renting out the compound when the families weren't using it for a charity events, weddings or personal vacationing.

Adolescent and Youth Development Major Jamie Hill

-Joseph P Kennedy Sr., the Kennedy’s father, was a chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange commission and also was the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom. This says that the nine Kennedy children during their youth or adolescence were in the limelight to the public but may have been ignored by their father sometimes when they really needed him.

I think that this may have affected David Kennedy who died from a drug overdose. If he had been payed more attention to and gotten some family therapy than he might have not gotten into drugs.

William Kennedy Smith, another of Joseph P. Kennedy’s sons was tried for rape but was not charged. This is another example of a Kennedy having had an issue later in life that could have been solved by getting more attention as a youth.

Rosemary Kennedy was believed to have a mental illness or was depressed. She was said to have both. This may have been helped with the proper care or medicine instead of a secret labotomy her father prepared for her to have.

kennedy adolescent solution
Kennedy Adolescent Solution
  • I think that if the Kennedy family had gotten more attention as youths it would have helped some of the children in their later years and maybe would have helped them in their time of grief caused by the tradgedies that happened that are referred to as the Kennedy curse.
  • One thing that I would do with my major to assist the Kennedy’s would be to plan more family vacations for them. They would involve different activities for the children to bond and spend time with their parents. This would add fun to their adolescence and help them all bond with their family.
  • Another idea would be family therapy sessions. With the children’s father being occupied with his career and he may not have been as existing as wanted. During adolescence, it seems youth have many problems and talking about them helps them grow and be able to deal with them later on.

  • Jean Ann Kennedy Smith is an American diplomat and was a former United States Ambassador to Ireland.
  • Unlike her brother John’s wife, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Jean needed assistance with styling. Being Ambassador to Ireland called for attending functions. Therefore, she must look stylish yet professional even if she is in Jacqueline’s shadow.
    • Jean hired me to be her personal stylist. I found her sophisticated, unique suits paired with all the right accessories. Some of her favorite garments were dresses by Diane von Furstenberg and suits by Chanel. Jean loved bold colorful jewels from designers like Kenneth Lane, Goldette, and Trifari. Jean was up to date with the styles of the 70’s and enjoyed wearing bellbottoms with platforms when she was dressing down.
