The Bermuda Meeting
In 1961 Bermuda was the focus of global attention as the historic two-day John Kennedy/Harold Macmillan Big Two summit meeting took place at Government House.
US President John F. Kennedy arrived at Kindley Air Force Base on December 21, 1961 to meet with Prime Minister Harold Macmillan about geo-political and nuclear policy, the third summit convened here following the three-way parley between President Dwight Eisenhower, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and French Premier Joseph Laniel at the Mid Ocean Club in 1953 and a 1957 Eisenhower-Macmillan meeting.
