President John F. Kennedy's offspring, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg and John F. Kennedy Jr., have accused their late father's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, of breaching their trust by misappropriating items that belong to history or to them -- and are asking that the items be returned. "It is now clear that Mrs. Lincoln took advantage of her position as our father's secretary, and later as custodian of objects intended for the Library, by taking home with her countless documents and objects that had belonged to our father and to the United States Government," the Kennedys said. Lincoln, who died in 1995, left the collection to her friend Robert White, who is selling a portion of his 100,000 items of Kennedy memorabilia at a New York auction this week. He hopes to open a museum with the proceeds, some of which are earmarked for cancer research.
