Nov 22 2013

This Friday, November 22, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Today, we recall our connections to the Kennedy family.

Maurine Kennedy and John Kennedy, 1960s

Maurine Brown Neuberger (left) was born and raised in Wilsonville, Oregon. She married Richard Neuberger, who became a U.S. Senator from Oregon. When Richard died while in office, Maurine finished out his term and then was re-elected, serving for much of the 1960s, during which time she came to know and work with JFK. She was the fourth woman elected to the U.S. Senate, and to date, she is the only woman elected to the Senate from Oregon. You can learn more about Maurine Neuberger in some wonderful artwork at the Wilsonville Pub.
