'There Was a President' --Complete
Record of Kennedy Assassination,
Events That Followed in Dallas

"Seventy hours and 30 minutes:
the weekend no one will ever for-
get." This is the explanatory legend
appended to the illustrated hard-
cover volume, "There Was a Presi-
dent," that has been published by
Random House.
It starts with photos of the
arrivals of the Kennedys in Dallas,
their alighting from the plane,
their trip through
the city, the fatal
shooting. Then
comes the title
page and the text:

Nov. 22, 1963;
1:45.03 p.m., con-
tinuing through Monday, Nov. 25,
1963, 1:17 a.m.
The text is from the Random
House original unillustrated "Sev-
enty Hours and Thirty Minutes."
It is a complete record in radio
and TV announcements, in pic-
tures covering the Dallas trip, the

shooting, the anguish of the family,
Lee Harvey Oswald's arrest, Jack
Ruby's shooting of Oswald.
There is drama, pathos, anguish,
suffering, suspense — in words
and pictures — in a volume well
There is no doubt that this work,
in large format, attractively print-
ed, will serve as an important
historical document.
