JFK Historymaker 1.0 for iOS – Encyclopedic, Multimedia Biography of JFK

New Rochelle, New York – MultiEducator, Inc., today is pleased to introduce JFK Historymaker 1.0 for iOS, their encyclopedic, multimedia biography of JFK 50 years after his inauguration. Featuring 36 chronologically ordered chapters, there are 250+ high resolution photographs, the full text of over 200 major addresses and news conferences, more than 60 pages of biographical information, and over 35 video clips. The reference app is fully searchable, and reveals in fascinating detail the upbringing, education, personal life, and public service of America’s 34th President. Written in 2010 by the President of MultiEducator, Marc Schulman, this text/audio/video biography benefits from the many documents that “have been declassified over time, bringing new facts to light.”

“I began this project 18 years ago, with a multimedia CD-ROM on the life of JFK, entitled: ‘JFK: History Maker’. It was a very nice program for its time. However, when I began work on this new program, commemorating 50 years since President Kennedy’s Inauguration, along with the advent of new iPad technology, we found our original program wanting.” As a result, the author re-read the standard texts on Kennedy, plus those written in the past 20 years, and read through the archives of Kennedy’s daily schedules. Ultimately, he completely rewrote the biography. In addition, Schulman looked through the 100 hours of video clips accumulated from the National Archives, plus photos from the Library of Congress and the Kennedy Library. With the help of two expert archivists at the Library, Schulman was able to “significantly expand the program’s photo collection.”

“John F Kennedy, Americas 34th President was inaugurated 50 years ago. Relive the day, understand the man, and see what America lost. See the strength and youth of a President who was so tragically struck down in his prime. Learn about JFK’s childhood, his wartime exploits and his career before the Presidency. Most importantly, explore the three years of his Presidency up close. Cherish his successes and learn from his failures. Understand the events that helped mold the early part of the turbulent 1960’s.”
