The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will close out its popular 2013 Living History Series with Kari-Mette Pigmans, a Pan Am stewardess aboard the White House press plan in the early 1960s. Pigmans will speak on the Museum’s seventh floor at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, December 6, and again at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 7.
Pigmans had met President John F. Kennedy several times and was at Dallas Love Field at the time of the president’s assassination. Coincidentally, she was working on both November 22, 1963, and September 11, 2001. Admission is $10 for the program only or included with paid Museum admission. Advance tickets are available at www.jfk.org through noon Friday. Remaining tickets will be available at the Ticket Sales desk on the day of the program, pending availability.
The Living History Series links the past to the present through firsthand accounts from reporters, law enforcement officials, doctors, military personnel and everyday citizens who witnessed the assassination or other historic events of the early 1960s. Each presenter in the monthly series has contributed to The Sixth Floor Museum’s ongoing Oral History Project. The collection includes more than 1,200 candid, informal interviews that recount the life and death of President John F. Kennedy, the history and culture of Dallas, and the 1960s. Anyone with vivid memories of President Kennedy, the assassination or other historic events of the era are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute to the collection. The 2014 Living History Series lineup will be announced soon.
