    Folder Description:
    This folder contains material collected by the office of President John F. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, concerning the President's News Conference of July 19, 1961 (News Conference 14). President Kennedy began the press conference by reading a statement concerning the situation in Germany following Communist threats to close the border to East Berlin. He then made several brief announcements concerning the Untied States economy; and announced that he would not be attending the Inter-American Economic and Social Council in Montevideo, Uruguay, but would send a delegation led by Secretary of the Treasury Douglas Dillon in his place. Following these statements the President answered questions from the press on a variety of topics including federal aid to education, defense expenditures and funds, the Freedom Riders movement, and Undersecretary of State Chester Bowles. Background materials in this folder consist of draft press conference announcements, the President's reading copy of his statement on Germany and Berlin, and a memorandum concerning the Department of State and Undersecretary of State Chester Bowles. The official White House transcript of the press conference and the stenotype transcript of the press conference are also included.
