An apparently complete press kit from the December 2, 1964 ground-breaking for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Highlighted by four photographs of intricate architectural models of the interior and exterior, the kit also contains dozens of pages of information provided to the press by the Center's public affairs department, including: a January 23, 1964 copy of the ìJohn F. Kennedy Center Actî of Congress; a copy of Most Reverend Philip M. Hannan's invocation during the ceremony; seating charts of dignitaries attending the event; background on the conception and planning behind the Center, and more. The Kennedy Center is the busiest performing arts center in The United States and represented the first time that the Federal Government financed construction of a building devoted to the performing arts. The Center opened to overwhelming positive reviews and remains an enduring landmark. A scarce and well-kept record of its ground-breaking. No copies located in OCLC nor in commerce.
