National Geographic : 1964 May
First Lady receives a 16-inch National Geographic globe as a souvenir of her official "launching" of the giant globe in Explorers Hall. Dr. Grosvenor points out to President and Mrs. Johnson that, in honor of the Society's 75th anniversary, a small diamond marks their Texas home, Johnson City. To President Johnson, Dr. Grosvenor presented a volume, specially bound for the occasion, holding two NATIONAL GEO GRAPHICS. One was the issue for October, 1919, the month in which the mother of the 11-year-old future President became a member of the Society. The other-Febru ary, 1964-contains the article he wrote as Vice President: "Friendly Flight to Northern Europe." The world grows smaller as Robert C. Watson III samples cake. Sara Grosvenor tries an orange. Blue, brown, and green 676 icing reflects colors of the Society's flag. KODACHROME5 UY NAII,n .L rvu nnrnl rnulv . ..... . .. _...._....... ......
