UTA exhibit revisits JFK in Fort Worth

See also

On the day preceding that fateful November drive through downtown Dallas, President and Mrs John F. Kennedy spent a pleasant day in Fort Worth. Despite the chilly, wet weather, Jack and Jackie were greeted by jubilant crowds upon their arrival. Reporters and photographers chronicled Kennedy's visit for the Fort Worth Star Telegram, capturing many never-published images of the President and First Lady.

Eighty photographs were selected from the Star Telegram photograph collection, housed at the University of Texas at Arlington's Special Collections, for the touching exhibit, "Howdy, Mr. President! A Fort Worth Perspective of JFK.” Free and open to the public, the exhibit will reside on the sixth floor of the UTA Central Library through February 8, Mondays, 9 a.m. - 7 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Take an online sneak peek of "Howdy, Mr. President!"
