Mary Bowe Hosts Dinner for Kennedy Kin and Mrs. Wendall Green and Ms. Helen Touhy
On September 16, 1960, shortly before John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon for the U.S. Presidency, the Chicago Tribune pictures Mary Bowe at home in her apartment at 1120 Lake Shore Drive. She has just served the group dinner. At the 4B living room piano is Joan Bennett Kennedy, married to the President’s brother Edward. Also present is another of the soon-to-be President’s sisters-in-law, Ethel Skakel Kennedy, married to his brother Bobby. Also with Mary Bowe is Lorraine Richardson Green, wife of Judge Wendall Green, Illinois’s first African American circuit court judge, and Ms. Helen Touhy.
