Recently in our look back at presidents who have visited St. Joseph, we covered Theodore Roosevelt in 1900 and Harry Truman in 1952.

This week it’s Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 – his appearance coming a few weeks before Truman’s – and Richard Nixon in 1960. Of the four, only Truman was a sitting president at the time. The others were candidates for the nation’s top spot.
