John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States of America and the youngest man ever elected to the office. Kennedy was noted for his Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and the Alliance for Progress. He was born to a known and wealthy family in Brookline, Massachusetts. His paternal grandfather was a banker and liquor trader, while his maternal grandfather was a politician who had served as a congressman and as a mayor in Boston. Unlike other successful men history who had a difficult childhood, JFK enjoyed life with more than enough of what he needs. He grew up as a mediocre student who would always prefer leisure over duty. Who would have thought that this mischievous boy would grow up to become the president of the United States.
