UPI Newspaper Fronts from Day of Days Following JFK's Assassination

Following are front pages of newspapers from across the nation from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963, and the days following his assassination. As you will note many of the newspapers represented here have long since become defunct. United Press International dominated the front pages of these papers, and legendary White House correspondent Merriman Smith got bylines in many. This material was printed in a publication distributed by United Press International as a promotional piece, and was provided to me compliments of Lewis Lord.
