Throwback Thursday: Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. '38

During a recent tumble through cyberspace, Flyby came across this old photograph of Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., brother of President John F. Kennedy '40, chilling in Winthrop's Gore courtyard. The acronym that never was, JPK graduated from Harvard in 1938 and attended Harvard Law School before enlisting in the Navy during World War II (he was later killed in action). Here, Joe keeps things classy but casual in a sport coat while reminding us that our genes will never be as good-looking as his. If you're suffering from a particularly strong case of Kennedy nostalgia, head over to Winthrop House and sit where JPK once sat. The JFK Suite is located just a few yards away, in F entryway.
