An intimate and fascinating memoir by Clint Hill, who spent four years as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedyâ€™s Secret Service agent. Even today, decades after JFKâ€™s presidency and Jackieâ€™s death, the public continues to be fascinated with the former First Lady. Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot and clung to the sides of the car as it sped toward the hospital. Now, in Mrs. Kennedy and Me, he recounts those painful memories along with his fonder recollections of the First Ladyâ€™s strength, class, dignity, and beauty during the time he was assigned as her personal agent. Hill was by Mrs. Kennedyâ€™s side for some of the happiest moments in her life as well as the darkest. He was there for the birth of John, Jr. as well as for the birth and sudden death of Patrick Bouvier Kennedy on August 8, 1963. Hill was there for Jackieâ€™s first meetings with men like Aristotle Onassis, Gianni Agnelli, and Andre Malraux; Jackieâ€™s trips to Europe, Asia, and South America; Kennedy-family holidays in Hyannis Port; and the dark days following the assassination. They addressed each other as â€œMrs. Kennedyâ€ and â€œMr. Hill,â€ even though they were often closer to each other than they were to their respective spousesyet their relationship remained professional. An astonishing and intimate portrait, told for the first time, Mrs. Kennedy and Me is a remarkable and true story of heroism, heartbreak, and humanity.
Clint Hill is a former United States Secret Service agent who was in the presidential motorcade during the John F. Kennedy assassination. Hill remained assigned to Mrs. Kennedy and the children until after the 1964 presidential election. He then was assigned to President Lyndon B. Johnson at the White House. In 1967, when Johnson was still in office, he became the Special Agent in Charge (SAIC) of Presidential protection. When Richard Nixon came into office, he moved over to be the SAIC of the Vice Presidential Protective Division. In 1972, Hill was promoted to the position of Assistant Director of the Secret Service, responsible for all protective forces. He retired in 1975.
