The President's Desk

The President's Desk
Take a look around John F. Kennedy's Oval Office. Explore the President's desk. Objects that shine are interactive. Click on a highlighted object to learn more about its significance.
There are seven illuminated objects - a telephone, picture frame, campaign button, diary, secret taping button, a piece of scrimshaw from Kennedy's collection, and the coconut husk paperweight containing the rescue message that saved Kennedy and his PT-109 crew.
