Mrs. Kennedy Visits Day Nursery in Mexico

June 30, 1962 - Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy today visited children in a day nursery with Mrs. de Lopez Mateos, the Mexican President’s wife. Mrs. Kennedy found the tour of the nursery, housed in the ultra-modern building of the National Infant Protection Institute, so “delicious” that she stayed half an hour longer than scheduled to cuddle and play with the youngsters. To one loudly crying infant she gave a plastic-wrapped lunch package put out by the factory, and he quieted at once. Subsequently, in the playground, she distributed lollipops and played at a sandbox.
