Original Red Cross poster. Black and white photo of group of teens meeting with President John F. Kennedy. Bold and attractive and would look great framed. "Teen Red Cross Leaders of 42 nations visit President Kennedy" in red lettering is superimposed on the bottom of the photo with Red Cross logo. Not often seen.
JFK met with International youth delegates at the White House as part of the American Red Cross program, Operation VISTA (Visit of International Students to America). The program brought 112 youth delegates from 42 countries to the United States in order to acquaint the youth of other countries with the humanitarian ideals and values of Red Cross service, and to establish new avenues of communication for humanitarian purposes among youth.
