Today we are honoring John F. Kennedy. We extend a warm welcome to friends and guests to our current exhibition commemorating our nation’s 35th president. We are hosting an all day open house here at the Poage with a program entitled, “Where were you? Reflections on November 22, 1963” at 3pm. For more details, visit here.
If distance separates us, we encourage you to visit with us virtually. This fall, BU’s Digital Collections has a series of articles highlighting some of the unique and thought-provoking JFK research materials found here at the Poage. We are grateful to our friends in Digital Collections for assisting us in making our records available to a wider audience.
Part 1: The Architect, the Assassination and the Conspiracy Advocate: Robert Cutler’s “Grassy Knoll Gazette”
Part 2: A View to a Kill: The Jack White Slide Collection Makes Its Case Through Visuals
Part 3: More Than the Sum of Its Parts: The JFK – Other Materials Collection
Part 4: A Diverse Topic Demands A Diverse Collection: The John Armstrong Collection
We’ve also had some national media attention this week featuring a letter on display from Catholic Priest Rev. Oscar L. Huber, who administered President Kennedy’s last rites. Find that story here.
And lastly, you can view our collection of JFK Materials on the Poage website.
On this cold and rainy day in Waco, the staff and student assistants at the Poage Library are taking today to remember the life, the presidency, and the legacy of John F. Kennedy.
Will you join us?
