On my patrol post

I was already out 'on the streets' at my crossing patrol post. 6th grade, elementary school. (Mrs. Knox)

One of the dismissed 6th graders told me there was a PA announcement about it just before dismissal.

I guess they had a tough decision to make about dropping that one on the elementary school kids, and it took them a while.

In School

In my shop class, then a radio shop student ran around and made the announcement of JFK being shot.

Nope

I was one and I assume I was sleeping in a crib but I cannot be sure.

Yep !

I was 13 years old and looking forward to entering high school. The next couple of days watching TV were something none of us had ever seen.

Band

The first news for me came in band followed by a very somber lunch, German and gym class before going home.

Mmm...

One Canadian's Perpective

It was the lunch hour in Grade 3. I remember four or five of us sitting in our classroom when someone ran in and said the President of the US had been shot. Our teacher and a group of ten year olds listened to the radio for the next half-hour.

We were in what was called an advanced education program, so we spent the afternoon discussing assassinations and their impact on politics. At that time Thomas D'Arcy McGee was th only Canadian politician to have been assassinated in office.

But even in Canada this was a somber day.

Where was I?

I was sitting in an electronics class at the U.S. Navy base in Memphis, Tennessee. If memory serves, it was just after lunch when the initial announcement came over the horn.

working

I was working for the local newspaper in the advertising department. We were just across the bull-pen from our bank of teletype machines so I was able to read the news before it was even broadcast on the local radio stations. I had saved the front pages of the 6 editions we published that day and turned them over to the history museum about 35 years later in pristine condition. It was history thought lost and then recovered.

In Boston

I was working at a remote experimental radar site along Boston Harbor for my employer when we got a phone call from our office. We closed up our site and drove towards home, picking up a copy of an early edition of the Record-American newspaper with the headline "President Kennedy Shot" -
I still own that Newspaper !

In School

I remember the high-school telling all of us to come to the Gym where they proceeded to tell us what happened.
