About the Book by Kate Storey Titled “White House By the Sea: A Century of the Kennedys at Hyannis Port”

From a New York Times book review by Louis Bayard headlined “Where Kennedys Sail and Play Football, Others Cook and Clean”:

We weren’t invited to hang out with them, and that was the point. At a key juncture in his life, Joe Kennedy wasn’t invited either. In 1922, already wealthy, a Harvard grad furiously propagating, he applied for membership in the prestigious Cohasset Golf Club outside of Boston. The Brahmins took one look at him and saw only the son of an Irish Catholic barkeep, so Joe set about building the most exclusive club of all.
