Christine Camp in her kitchen at Waldenside, the family home, Red Haw, Ohio (ca. 1986, photo by Twyla Jones, The Daily Record).
The Christine Camp Archives: Waldenside is the personal archives of
Christine Camp (Class of 1951, Distinguished Alumni 1990). In the early
1950s, Camp was one of the first female intelligence officers to work
for the Central Intelligence Agency. In the late 1950s, she was one of
few women to work as a member of the Washington press corps. She worked
on John F. Kennedy's first presidential campaign and served as
assistant to White House Press Secretary, Pierre Salinger. In the early
1970s, she worked as Deputy Press Secretary for George McGovern.
The collection includes scrapbooks, framed photographs, artwork,
monographs, memorabilia, recordings, and transcripts of interviews Camp
had done for the Kennedy Library. The monographs include many inscribed
and signed editions from members of the Kennedy family and the
administrative staff. The collection includes many impressive
photographs, including a photograph of John F. Kennedy taken by Mark
Shaw at the Kennedy Compound Beach in 1963. The photograph is framed and
inscribed by the photographer. It was given to Camp as a Christmas
gift in December 1963. A framed print, given to select members of the
staff for their efforts during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962,
is inscribed to Camp from John F. Kennedy.
The collection also contains historical information regarding the
Camp family house and farm, Waldenside, located in Red Haw, Ohio.
