The History Place - John F. Kennedy Photo History

Early Years: Pals - and rivals - Joseph Patrick (left) and John Fitzgerald. Fiercely loyal and fiercely competitive, they sometimes even brawled as boys. Joe was a natural athlete and had many talents, but was also a bit more serious. Young Jack Kennedy was a sickly child but fun loving and well liked. Despite his illnesses, Jack liked to compete in sports - the competitive spirit largely encouraged by his father.
