‘Dwight Eisenhower and Wife Leaning Out Window’

Washington, DC, USA — Original caption: Making his first public appearance since he was hospitalized 19 days ago with ileitis, President Eisenhower, with the First Lady at his side, is seen in this photo giving a snappy high ball salute to the Army band below which serenaded him with the selection Man of the Hour. The Chief Executive twice agreed to photographers’ requests for a “just one more” pose leaning out the window of his third floor room. The band was conducted by Major Hugh Curry, who served in the President’s European command during the last war. — Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
