JFK campaign stop remembered


Richard Clark was a boy when John F. Kennedy stopped in Seymour during his presidential campaign.

Kennedy was a 43-year-old Democratic U.S. senator from Massachusetts and visited the Farmers Club — now the Greater Seymour Chamber of Commerce — in downtown Seymour to campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination on April 29, 1960.

He would become the 35th president of the United States, defeating Republican Richard Nixon in the general election that fall.
