This folder contains material collected by the office of President John F. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, concerning the President's News Conference of January 15, 1962 (News Conference 20). President Kennedy began the press conference by discussing how the current supply of scientific and technical manpower was inadequate to meet the growing demand within the United States. He then announced that he had asked the Science Advisory Council, in cooperation with the Federal Council for Science and Technology, to report on specific measures that could be taken to develop the necessary manpower to meet the country's needs; and encouraged young people to consider careers in science and technology. Following the announcement the President answered questions from the press on a variety of topics including the effect of foreign trade and competition on United States industry. Background materials in this folder include a draft press conference announcement and briefing papers concerning the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the United States Government's increasing balance of payment deficit. The official White House transcript of the press conference and the stenotype transcript of the press conference are also included.
