JFK and BOBBY, ARNIE and JACK...and David!

The Unusual PR Career of David Pearson

David Pearson

JFK and BOBBY, ARNIE and JACK...and David! opens with the riveting story of David Pearson's experience in the White House the night of November 22, 1963, as he was asked to help in the preparations for President John F. Kennedy's funeral. Pearson's role was to handle the press that fateful night, and he became a witness to history. The book has two parts: it describes Pearson's early life in Miami, and then tells the story of his unusual PR career. This includes his experiences in the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, as well as a series of interesting vignettes of his dealings with a number of sports celebrities, mainly in the game of golf. To name a few: Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Pete Dye, and Robert Trent Jones.
