Eisenhower Press Conference

Wednesday, October 13, 1965

This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

Begins abruptly.

Eisenhower speaks about books he has written, but does not call himself a writer. He says he is ready to answer questions about his book or his birthday.
He does not mention the title of the book. Perhaps "The White House Years: Waging Peace : 1956-1961."

Questions and answers follow, includes:

-Eisenhower's trip to the Mid-East in 1959 and his desire to lessen the tension in Pakistan. He speaks specifically about events in Kashmir.

-Draft dodging.

-International relations and communism.

About Miscellaneous

Programs ranging from the 1930s to the 1970s covering a variety of cultural and political topics.

From archival broadcasts of sewer plant openings to single surviving episodes of long-defunct series, "Miscellaneous" is a catch-all for the odds and ends transferred as part of the New York Public Radio Archives Department's massive NEH-funded digitization project, launched in 2010.

Buried in this show you will find all sorts of treasures, from the 1937 dedication of the WNYC Greenpoint transmitter to the 1939 lighting of the City Hall Christmas tree and the 1964 reception for Nobel Prize recipient Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

This collection includes some unique “slice-of-life” productions that provide a telling portrait of America from the 1940s through the 1950s, such as public service announcements regarding everything from water conservation to traffic safety and juvenile delinquency and radio dramas such as "The Trouble Makers" and "Hate, Incorporated."
