On October 20, 1968, just 3 1/2 weeks earlier, Jacqueline Kennedy had married Aristotle Onassis, a wealthy Greek shipping magnate, who was able to provide the privacy and security she sought for herself and her children. The wedding took place on Skorpios, Onassis?s private Greek island in the Ionian Sea. Katzenbach?s Washington Post obituary described him as ?an unflappable lawyer who served as the Kennedy brothers? emissary to the South during the violent confrontations over racial segregation in the early 1960s and who later was an architect of landmark civil rights laws under President Johnson ... He wrote a key midnight brief during the Cuban missile crisis, challenged FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover over the wiretapping of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., conceived of the Warren Commission to investigate President John F. Kennedy?s assassination, and argued with some of the most powerful federal officials over how to extricate the country from the Vietnam War ...? When Robert F. Kennedy resigned as Attorney General to run for the U.S. Senate in 1964, he was succeeded by his Deputy Attorney General, Nicholas Katzenbach (1922-2012). In 1966, Katzenbach was appointed Under Secretary of State (1966-1969)."
