Biographical Note

John F. Kennedy served as the thirty-fifth president of the United States from 20 January 1961 until his assassination on 22 November 1963.

The donor and collector Tyrone Keith Yates was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1954 and earned a B.A. in history from the University of Cincinnati and a J.D. from the University of Toledo College of Law. Yates has pursued further studies at the Harvard Law School and Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Yates’ distinguished career in public service includes stints as a State of Ohio Assistant Attorney General, Vice-Mayor of Cincinnati and member of the Cincinnati City Council (1990-1999), a Democratic member of the Ohio House of Representatives (2003-2010), and a Hamilton County Municipal judge (2011- ).

The collection evolved from Judge Yates’ research interests in the 1962 integration of the University of Mississippi by James H. Meredith during the Kennedy Administration.

The collection consists of publications and memorabilia related to John F. Kennedy, Kennedy family members, and other presidential candidates. The material is arranged according to format and size: Box 1 holds smaller printed material like pamphlets and bumper stickers, and Box 2 holds oversized items. Although largely organized by chronology, later additions to the collection are added at the end of the box. Boxes 3 through 6 contain artifacts, and Box 7 holds additional oversized material.
