Background: President Kennedy flew to Palm Beach from Washington December 19. He had been summoned urgently when his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, suffered a stroke whilst playing golf that morning.
The President, accompanied by his wife, went straight from the airport to St. Mary's Hospital where the elder Mr. Kennedy, a former Ambassador to Britain, was undergoing emergency treatment for a condition described as "serious".
