Clinton Meets Kennedy exhibition opens at Clinton House Museum

A new exhibition explores the moment when a young Bill Clinton met President Kennedy

Clinton House Museum has launched its latest exhibition, entitled Clinton Meets Kennedy.

Bill Clinton Boys Nation Kennedy Boys Nations teaches delegates about the federal government through taking part in a mock senate and mock elections

The exhibition explores the moment when the fresh-faced Bill Clinton met President John F Kennedy at the White House in 1963, having just taken part in the exclusive week-long civic training event Boys Nation.

Clinton recalls how as a 16-year-old he "muscled his way" through the crowds to ensure he received a handshake from the president at the White House. The exhibition will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event, and the profound impact it has had on Clinton throughout his career.

Clinton House Museum is set on the site of Bill and Hillary Clinton's first home in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It is also the place where they were married in 1975.

Paul Fraser Collectibles has an exceptional collection of presidential memorabilia for sale, including rare items from Kennedy, Washington and Lincoln.
