45 Years Ago.....

I was going through my photo files and came across this photo I took in 1963.

President Kennedy flew into our seaside city to speak at graduation and receive an honorary degree at San Diego State. This was about 5 months before he went to Dallas.

As I recall, we had to go through lengthy procedures and it took several weeks for the Union-Tribune newspapers to obtain clearance and credentials to cover the event.

In the 1960 Presidential campaign, when I was a college student on a photography scholarship at the University of San Diego, I asked a policeman if I could climb up on the platform while Senator Kennedy spoke before a huge downtown crowd.

He said "Sure, let me give you a hand."
