JACKIE KENNEDY

Expo 67 was honoured to welcome former American first lady Jacqueline "Jackie" Kennedy, for two days, from October 6 to 8. Though her visit was meant to be a private event, the widow of the former American president held a morning press conference to announce that she would be touring Man and His World. This action obviously ran counter to remaining incognito. Celebrities who wanted to avoid public attention were provided with certain services, such as a non-uniformed guide to accompany them. Welcomed by Assistant Commissioner General Milton Fredman of the United States pavilion, Mrs. Kennedy began her visit at the Czechoslovakia pavilion. Always elegant, she did not hesitate to talk with visitors and journalists calling out to her.
