A Semester to Remember

One Sunday in 1961, The New York Times featured a large photo of a presidential press conference. It was taken from behind John F. Kennedy, looking out at the press corps. In the middle of the photo, among the nation’s most distinguished reporters and newscasters, sat a 20-year-old college student from Lincoln, Nebraska.
