Robert F. Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy's life story is one of America's most enduring tales of political service.

Born to Rose and Joseph Kennedy in 1925, Robert F. Kennedy attended Harvard University to study government and politics. He left before graduating to serve in the Navy during World War II and became a lieutenant. After the war, he returned to get his B.A. and later earned a law degree from the University of Virginia.

He joined the U.S. Department of Justice in 1951, but resigned a year later to run the successful Senate campaign for his brother, John. Later, he managed his brother's successful Presidential campaign and was named U.S. Attorney General. From 1960 to 1964, Robert F. Kennedy served as Attorney General, attempting to ensure that black Americans had the right to vote, to attend school, and to use public accommodations.

Soon after his brother was assassinated in 1963, Kennedy resigned from President Lyndon Johnson's cabinet and ran successfully for the U.S. Senate. In 1968, he was running for President and had just won the California primary when he was killed at the age of 42 on June 4, 1968.

The obverse of the 1998 Robert F. Kennedy Commemorative Silver Dollar bears an especially realistic engraving of Robert F. Kennedy.
