Info From the Collection Book - John F Kennedy Inaugural Address

    Washington, DC sparkled with the beauty of a fresh snowfall on January 28, 1961, the inauguration day of John F. Kennedy. Shortly before noon, government officials and foreign dignitaries, resplendent in their top hats and formal clothes, gathered with an audience of thousands on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol. They had come to witness the stately ceremony which would inaugurate John F. Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States.

    As Kennedy took his place next to 70-year old Dwight D. Eisenhower, the outgoing President, the formal induction began. Richard Cardinal Cushing recited a prayer, and Robert Frost, the white-haired poet of Kennedy's native New England, read one of his own poems. Then, the new, young leader solemnly repeated the oath of office administered by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Earl Warren.

    Braving the cold, frosty weather without a hat and coat, Kennedy delivered an Inaugural Address that stressed a theme of renewal. "Let the world go fourth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans," he announced. Speaking in clear, ringing tones, he made pledges of loyalty to Allies and set goals for his administration. At the same time, he issued a memorable call for the people to share the burden of defending freedom: "And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you - asked what you can do for your country."

    When the applause stopped, the millions who had heard Kennedy's stirring words realized this Inaugural Address signaled the beginning of a new era in American politics.

    The historic mint stamp featured on this Panel depicts the White House. It was issued in 1938 to honor the Executive Mansion. This Panel is postmarked January 20, the exact anniversary of John F Kennedy Inaugural Address as President.
