- Fidel Castro and Vice President Richard Nixon as they emerge from a private meeting at the White House during the former's unofficial trip to Washington, D.C., in April of 1959 (see esp. 8-12). Frames 23-27 show the two shaking hands and remaining frames show them answering reporters' questions. Fidel Castro made the trip, together with a large entourage of well over a hundred people, on April 14, 1959, in response to the invitation of Jules Dubois, editor of the Chicago Tribune and then president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Fidel remained in the United States for more than two weeks, eventually touring cities on the eastern seaboard such as Boston, Princeton, New Jersey and New York City. For other images of Fidel Castro's trip to Washington and New York, see Prints 55-78 and Contact Book V; for other images of Fidel Castro after his meeting with Nixon, see Prints 59 and 69.
