Today is the 45th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. In the state’s newspaper of record, the Boston Globe, there were two mentions of this. The first, on the sports page, C1, in an article about the Harvard-Yale football game.
Today, when Harvard and Yale meet at the Stadium for the 125th time, is the 45th anniversary of Jack’s assassination, when the game was postponed for the only time.
The second mention was in the Globe’s vaunted “G” section, page 20, “This Day In History” 2 pages before the shrunken comics:
In 1963 President Kennedy was shot to death while riding in a motorcade in Dallas. John B. Connolly, Governor of Texas, in the same limousine as Kennedy, was seriously wounded. Suspect Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested.
