Kennedy family

The Kennedy family is an American political family that has been prominent in American politics, public service, and business. At least one Kennedy family member held federal elective office in every year between 1947 and 2011, and then from 2013 onwards, a span of time comprising more than a quarter of the nation's existence. The descendants of Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. and Rose Kennedy include six members of the United States House of Representatives or Senate, one of whom became president of the United States; as well as two U.S. ambassadors, a lieutenant governor, three state legislators (one of whom went on to the U.S. House of Representatives), and one mayor. In addition, Joseph's and Rose's daughter Eunice founded the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a part of the National Institutes of Health, and founded the Special Olympics.

All of the Kennedy daughters attended The Convent of the Sacred Heart. Pat Kennedy was seriously unhappy in her marriage to Peter Lawford. She drank heavily during their marriage and rarely interacted with their children. Also during this time, through Peter Lawford's Hollywood connections (especially as a member of the "Rat Pack," with Frank Sinatra), Pat become close with Marilyn Monroe. This relationship helped to keep Marilyn's affair with the president, Pat's brother, JFK, quite.
