Convention Hall organ

I love viewing and reading history about that convention hall, which houses the world's largest pipe organ. I wonder if it was played much at that convention. FWIW, there's a great Facebook page which is documenting the continuing progress on the restoration of that instrument, and a lot of details and aspects of the hall are discussed, too.

Always The Network With the Best Graphics

52 years later and CBS News is still using virtually the same logo seen at this convention on its website in 2016.

Reminds me of Mom

My mother was a delegate at that convention. She is on the right of this photo taken at the convention. She and the other woman served President and Mrs. Johnson tea. I never did ask her why, but I'm thinking LBJ probably wanted something a little stronger.
