Theodore C. Sorensen, Advisor to President John F. Kennedy

I still believe that the mildest and most obscure of Americans can be rescued from oblivion by good luck, sudden changes in fortune, sudden encounters with heroes. I believe it because I lived it. Theodore C. Sorensen (1928-2010), one of the last links to President John F. Kennedy's administration, a writer and counselor who did much to shape the president’s narrative, image and legacy, died Sunday, October 31, 2010, in Manhattan. He was 82.
