    Folder Description:
    This folder contains material collected by the office of President John F. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, for the President's News Conference of December 12, 1962 (News Conference 46). The President began the press conference with a statement thanking the French government for loaning Leonardo da Vinci 's Mona Lisa to the United States for exhibition at the National Gallery in Washington D.C. He then stated that disputes between the American Athletic Union and athletic federation groups are jeopardizing U.S. participation in international competition, including the 1964 Olympic Games, and urged the groups to put their differences aside immediately. Following these statements the President answered questions on a variety of topics including the alleged information breach of the National Security Council regarding Governor Adlai Stevenson, the possibility of a direct line between the United States and the Soviet Union, the situation in Cuba, and the Alliance for Progress. He then announced he would deposit his papers in a Presidential Library in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This folder also includes draft press conference announcements, some with handwritten editorial marks and annotations by the President. The official White House transcript of the press conference and the stenotype transcript of the press conference are also included.
