San Francisco: 1959. Good. Item #16

A press photo collection shows Nikita Khrushchev, the premier of the Soviet Union and first secretary of its Communist Party, touring the United States. The first trips–which occurred during a brief thawing of the Cold War, and was intended to thaw it further–included meetings with notables such as President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, and Eleanor Roosevelt; visits to American institutions such as a movie studio and a supermarket; and encounters with ordinary citizens, including both well-wishers and protesters. It captured the nation’s imagination and dominated newspaper headlines and TV news broadcasts.

Provenance: San Francisco Newspaper Archive; Quantity: 340 photographs; Dimensions: Approx. 32 x 20 cm; 25.5 x 20.5 cm.

Price: $1,200.00
