Hugh D. Auchincloss

Hugh D. Auchincloss was married three times. First to a Russian woman, then to Gore Vidal's mother Nina, and lastly to Jackie's mother, Janet (holding baby in picture). He had children from all three marriages. His oldest son, known as "Yusha" is pictured below sitting next to Jackie. Hugh was a Yale graduate, a close friend of former CIA Director Allen Dulles, and an heir to the Standard Oil fortune. Yusha worked for the CIA. In the book, Dreaming in French, author Alice Kaplan explains that Hugh talked to Allen Dulles about getting Jackie a position.  

The Auchincloss family. A den of spies?
