The Ar­chives

1963

Newsweek - - Rewind -

“In one sud­den, aw­ful con­vul­sion of his­tory last week, the majesty and the bur­dens of the pres­i­dency of the United States shifted from one man to an­other,” Newsweek de­clared. Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy was dead, shot on Novem­ber 22 in Dal­las, and so was his as­sas­sin, iden­ti­fied as a “self-styled Marx­ist” named Lee Har­vey Oswald. As Lyn­don John­son took of­fice as the 36th pres­i­dent, “it was left to a sor­row­ing na­tion to an­swer his call for help—and to pray with him for God’s.”
