Nice quiz! A couple of things - please accept "Joe" for his father's name (when I typed "Joe" in, it filled in his brother's name, but not his Dad's); and he was elected in earlier years as well (eg to the senate) - maybe worth tweaking that clue to reference the presidency?

Good quiz. I could remember his wedding year, but not the date. Also, Kennedy had a host of medical issues. I spent the majority of my time trying things like colitis, ulcers, ruptured disk, spinal issues, etc. Definitely one the more interesting and challenging quizzes I've taken. A great job for a first quiz.

Why did I only get 50% for White House Tour and Brookline? I didn't misspell either one.
