POLITICS: Kennedy family tree infographic

50th anniversary of Robert Kennedy assassination.

Graphic News

June 15, 2018 -- Fifty years ago, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was shot and fatally wounded at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, hours after winning the California presidential primaries in the 1968 election. He died in the early hours of the next day.

Fifty years later, Robert’s grandson, Joe Kennedy III, is a rising star of the Democratic party.

The 37-year-old, who is currently serving his third term as U.S. Representative of Massachusetts 4th Congressional District, stepped into the national spotlight as he delivered the traditional rebuttal to President Trump's State of the Union speech in January.

The Kennedys were one of the most prominent families in 20th Century U.S. politics. Joseph Kennedy was U.S. ambassador to Britain under President Franklin Roosevelt. His son John F Kennedy was president 1961-63, and his other sons Robert and Edward became senators.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
