John F Kennedy- President with a Pulitzer Prize


John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States of America. At 43 he became one of the youngest Presidents of the USA. He is the only US President to have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. The notable events during his tenure were the Cuban missile crisis, building of Berlin War and the beginning of the Vietnam War. Aldous Leonard Huxley was an eminent English writer who was also a humanist, pacifist and a satirist. He moved to Los Angeles and settled there. Some of his works are Point Counter Point, Do What You Will, The Devils of Loudun and Island. He also wrote an essay in a very poignant style on the ‘Bose Institute’, the research institution created by Sir J.C. Bose. Both Kennedy and Huxley died on the same day, i.e. November 22, 1963.
