About this item
In the summer of 1962, President John F. Kennedy installed a secret taping system in the White House. Aiming to record meetings and conversations he considered important, most likely in preparation for a memoir of his years in office, Kennedy left behind an extraordinarily revealing and intimate record of the view from inside the White House. The Presidential Recordings, John F. Kennedy: Volumes IV–VI expand the acclaimed Presidential Recordings series—an ambitious project undertaken by the Miller Center at the University of Virginia to transcribe and annotate the secretly recorded White House tapes. The volumes cover the time period between October 29, 1962, and February 7, 1963. During these pivotal months, JFK faced the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, adjusted to new political realities after the 1962 midterm elections, struggled with Western European allies, and prepared for his reelection campaign that would, tragically, never come to fruition.
