Big Edies Brother, John Vernou "Black Jack" Bouvier III (May 19, 1891 – August 3, 1957) was an American socialite and Wall Street stockbroker. He was the father of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill.

They had a lot of officers at Montauk, but I couldn’t go to any of the dances because Mother had eye trouble and she wouldn’t let me out. The war just passed me by. Of course, I was the pin-up girl.
