This Day In History


January 20, 1961 - John F. Kennedy
1961 : John F. Kennedy, the nation's youngest president (at this time), took the oath of office today. He was sworn in by Chief Justice Earl Warren. Vice-President Lyndon Johnson (who became president after JFK was assassinated), was sworn in on the same day as JFK. As part of the inauguration celebration on this day, Robert Frost himself recited from memory one of his own poem entitled "The Gift Outright". He was originally going to read a poem that he wrote especially for this day called "Dedication", but he could not read the ink from the page he was viewing.
