Six months after the death of John F. Kennedy, on Sunday, 17 May 1964, the state of North Carolina held a memorial service for Kennedy in Kenan Stadium on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus. In an effort to raise money for the Kennedy presidential library, ?a living memorial,? each state pledged to raise funds. An estimated 12,000 people attended the memorial, paying $10.00 to attend and contribute toward the goal. Rose Kennedy, mother of the former president, addressed the crowds. (UPI Photo/Files)
