To us he was the one and only President

On a Friday noon my Sr.year (1963/4) while returning to my East dorm room from an 11:00 class a very concerned group of undergrads shouted to me “the president’s been shot”…My first and immediate thought: Impossible! No one would ever shoot Joe Platt. To us he was the one and only President. The date was Friday Nov. 23, 1963
