John F. Kennedy Texas Welcome Dinner Ticket :
A ticket to the TEXAS WELCOME DINNER honoring President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson at the Municipal Auditorium in Austin on November 22, 1963. This dinner was sponsored by The State Democratic Executive Committee, and was to have taken place at 7:30, Friday evening on that fateful day. Of course it never took place. This rare golden ticket has been laminated, and the lamination has some wear from handling over the years (it is 50 years old!), but the printing is still very legible. The back is blank--just white paper. It measures 4" by 2 1/2". A sad and rare artifact from that tragic day in Texas. Please email any questions. Good luck!
