President Kennedy is 46

May 29, 1963 - President Kennedy (pictured today) cautiously conceded this afternoon that it was his 46th birthday. While he hesitated before saying so, Mr. Kennedy didn’t seem to resent passing another milestone. In fact, he took the offensive by smilingly informing a group of newsmen: “You all look older today.” Presents, greetings, and well wishes poured in at the White House. Among other things, Mr. Kennedy received a keg of 46-year-old brandy from some New York physicians who are members of a wine connoisseurs club and a Civil War rifle 100 years old. The carbine repeater was presented by Secretary of the Army Cyrus Vance and Army Vice Chief of Staff Barksdale Hamlett.
