“Author Traces Kennedy Impact.” Article by Richard Woodley. Middletown (Conn.) Press, 12 December, 1, 20. Account of Mailer’s talk at Wesleyan University in the wake of the assassination of the President. Mailer said that when Kennedy, who he felt was a sort of older brother, was alive, “you had the feeling for the first time there was somebody in the White House you could talk to.” He went on to indicate his fear for the future of the country: “We now wonder who will be leading the country in a year, whether or not Johnson will be alive.”
