Myer Feldman, Influential Adviser to President Kennedy 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

Mr. Feldman became such a trusted and powerful aide that he was one of two people who informed Kennedy of his election. Kennedy went to bed not knowing the outcome. The next morning, Mr. Feldman greeted Kennedy with the words, "Good morning, Mister President."

He went to play pivotal roles in the defining moments of the Kennedy presidency, one of which was the Cuban missile crisis. The president charged Feldman with developing contingency plans to preserve the government should a nuclear attack occur. Mr. Feldman also had a big hand in planning President Kennedy's funeral.
