A Real Treasure

by Dane on Jun 4, 2009

This book grew out of a series of articles, in McCalls magazine, in 1959-60, by Molly Thayer,a friend of Jackie, and her mother, Janet Auchincloss. It is a charming sketch of a highly individualistic woman, from a priviliged background. It is also an example of Jackie's intuitive, albeit initial reluctance, to share personal informaion to a curious public. No doubt the Kennedy family urged her to do this, as part of the campaign, but she did it on her own selective terms, aided by another scion of American aristocracy, Molly Van Rensselaer Thayer, of the old dutch patroon family. A durable, and not unproven, rumor is that Jackie wrote the articles herself, and Molly simply served as "editor". What is known, however, is that Jackie did tell her mother not to show "Molly Thayer any more old photographs" because she was disturbed that the one of her taken against a canvas tennis screen, with a cigarrette holder,and wearing a peasant style blouse, "makes me look like a stupid glamour girl."
