Born in Southampton, New York, in 1929 to a socialite mother and stockbroker father, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier graduated from George Washington University with a French literature degree. During her studies she also became something of a socialite herself, and she acquired a junior editorship at Vogue magazine. She was later given a job as a photojournalist at the Washington Times-Herald.
