Kennedy during his years in the White House than any of the other members of his inner-circle of advisers and aides... Both O'Donnell and Powers managed to remain almost unknown to the reading public. They were always within the beckoning distance of the President around the office and always at his side when he traveled, but the stayed so anonymous that they were usually mistaken for a couple of Secret Service agents. Devoted to the President and sharing his intimates confidences, but keeping out of his limelight and cloaking themselves in closed-mouth reticence, they were dubbed by the White House press corps the "Kennedy's Irish Mafia". Both knew Kennedy and all of his family since Jack ran for Congress in Boson in 1946. They were among the first few men whom he named as special assistants when he was elected. O'Donnell's official title was Appointments Secretary. Pierre Salinger, JKF's press secretary called O'Donnell the most powerful member of the White House staff. Outside of Bobby Kennedy's had only one really close friend and that was Dave Powers. He was warm and genial and completely unpretentious, who had been a poor newspaper boy in Charlestown. He enjoyed an incredible memory of names, faces, and poll statistics. He simply was a guy Kennedy liked to have around him as much as possible. They swam together in the warm White House pool. Dave helped organize the Kennedy Library and became the first Curator of its Museum.

David Francis Powers was Special Assistant and assistant Appointments Secretary to President of the United States John F. Kennedy. Powers served as Museum Curator of the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum from 1964 until his retirement in May 1994.
