February 1, 1991: Friends of the John F. Kennedy Library gathered in the new Stephen E. Smith wing while Carol Ferguson took plastic off the podium and architect Robert Imhoff took notes from the scaffolding. Imhoff worked for Pei, Cobb, Freed and partners. The 22,000-square-foot wing named for President Kennedy's brother-in-law, and president emeritus of the library foundation, was part of I.M. Pei's original design for the library but was not built at the same time due to lack of money. The new wing featured a great hall dominated by a two-story window that presented a stunning panorama of the harbor and Boston's skyline. Smith, who died the previous August, led the campaign for construction of the original building and creation of a library endowment.
