JFK is stationed in Charleston, South Carolina where he is joined this Friday by his girlfriend Inga Arvad. She had traveled to there from Washington, D.C., and checked into the Fort Sumter Hotel using the name of Barbara White.
He arrived at the hotel at five thirty five and spent the night in her room, leaving the room only to grab a quick supper.
The FBI had Arvad under surveillance and the times and activities of Kennedy and Arvad were being observed and recorded by the Charleston field office. A bug had also been placed in her room and their conversations were recorded.
