U.S. President John F. Kennedy and Mexican President Adolfo Lopez Mateos are showered with tons of confetti and paper, June 29, 1962, as they travel down one of Mexico City’s boulevards shortly after Kennedy’s arrival for a three-day visit.
Jackie met John Kennedy, a congressman, at a dinner party where they were officially introduced. The two hit it off so well that after the dinner, Kennedy asked Jackie out for a drink. Upon realizing that she was with John Husted, he respectfully bowed out. Jacqueline Bouvier and Senator John F. Kennedy announced their engagement in June 1953.
