President John F Kennedy Comes to UNC Chapel Hill


On October 12th, 1961 President John F. Kennedy came to Chapel Hill to receive an honorary degree and make a speech at Kenan Stadium. I had been an admirer of the President since 1960, when I was in the fifth grade, and he responded to a letter I sent to him about protecting Martin Luther King. (Chapel Hill Memories)
