• Short Summary

    President Dwight Eisenhower holds press conference at Washington DC.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused material.

    President Dwight Eisenhower holds press conference, Washington DC, United States of America (USA).

    Good C/U of Eisenhower standing behind microphones. He makes several announcements about: floods in North West of US, President Gronchi of Italy's visits to USA and that he will make a further announcement about his own personal future later that evening (there is debate as to whether he will continue as leader for another term after his recent heart attack). He then takes questions from the press; they all ask him about his future and the future of his vice-president Richard Nixon - Ike gives no clear answers!

    Date on dope sheet is 01/03/1956.

    NB: sound quality not great but still audible.
