Mrs. Kennedy and Me Reveals Details of Hill’s Years Assigned to Protect Jacqueline Kennedy

For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During that time, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend.

Fifty years later, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender, enthralling and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in a North Dakota orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady. Filled with unforgettable details, Mrs. Kennedy and Me is the story of a man doing the most exciting job in the world, with a woman all the world loved, and the tragedy that ended it all too soon — a tragedy that haunted him for fifty years.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will host a discussion with Mr. Hill moderated by journalist and author Lisa McCubbin at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2012. A book signing will occur at 3 p.m. Both events will take place on the seventh floor. Program is free with paid Museum admission or $5 for program only. The Museum will not be taking reservations. Seating is limited and will begin at 1 p.m. Books can be pre-ordered at and will be for sale on-site. Pre-orders placed by Wednesday, April 18, 2012 can be picked up at the event.
