Friday, Nov. 22, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who died on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. In 1962, Kennedy landed by helicopter in the Patterson Park annex field, remembers photographer Tom Scilipoti, who took this shot soon afterward.
“He gave a speech at the Fifth Regiment Armory on Mt. Royal Avenue,” said Scilipoti. “I got to shake his hand—I haven’t washed it since!”
