John F. Kennedy’s Reading Copy of the Inaugural Address

John F. Kennedy’s reading copy of the Inaugural Address, page 13. On January 18, 1961, Ted Sorensen’s secretary typed a 14-page final version which was placed in a black three-ring binder. On the morning of January 20, Secret Service agents took the binder to the Capitol and placed it on President Kennedy’s seat. This is one of the pages President Kennedy read from at the lectern.
