November 23, 1963, Appleton Post-Crescent
I believe everyone of a certain age remembers where they were and what they were doing when this tragic event occurred. I was in Sister Marietta's first grade at St. Mary's when the announcement came over the loud speaker in the classroom. I recall we were encouraged to say a group prayer. Later, when it was confirmed that he was, indeed, gone, we were dismissed from school. My big brother from the high school came and walked me home. The rest of the weekend was a big blur, though I recall the somber funeral on television.
