November 8, 1960...

... Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy defeats Vice President Richard M. Nixon for the Presidency of the United States.

President John F. Kennedy was a lifelong supporter and advocate of the arts, and frequently steered the public discourse toward what he called "our contribution to the human spirit."

"I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for our victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit."

-- John F. Kennedy
