A few months back, a reader brought us a stack of yellowing editions of the Kokomo Tribune. She said she had found them in her parents’ attic and wanted to see if we wanted them before they headed to the trash heap. We quickly agreed and started perusing the bounty. In addition to several copies of papers relating to the April 1965 tornado outbreak, we found three copies concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy: the Nov. 23, 24 and 27, 1963 editions of the paper. Fifty years later, these papers constitute a time capsule of local reactions to the monumental event.
