The term “Camelot” was assigned by Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (the former first lady), when she was being interviewed by a journalist. The former first lady described her husbands presidency as the American “Camelot”, requesting for the memory of his presidency to be preserved. Camelot refers to the time of the knights of the round table and King Arthur. After suggesting that the greatest memories of her husbands presidency was a reminiscent of the glory days of the legends of Camelot, journalists were able to quickly pick up on this idea. The image of Camelot in regards to JFK’s presidency remains to this day.
