November 22 marks the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination in Dallas. Commonweal followed, with understandable interest, the career of Kennedy from his time in the U.S. Senate through his shortened term as president, as well as his legacy and the political and legal response to his murder. Through editorials, essays, and articles, the magazine covered Kennedy from a range of vantages and viewpoints. Appearing below are links to (and excerpts from) some featured stories from our archives.
