On June 15, 1935, JFK graduated from The Choate School in Connecticut.
When Kennedy entered Choate, his older brother, Joe Jr., had already been attending for two years, a football star and leading student. Jack spent his first years at Choate in his brother’s shadow, and compensated for this with rebellious behavior that attracted a following. Their most notorious stunt was to explode a toilet seat with a powerful firecracker. In the ensuing chapel assembly, the strict headmaster brandished the toilet seat and spoke of certain “muckers” who would “spit in our sea.” The defiant Jack Kennedy took the cue and named his group “The Muckers Club.”
