With President Mankey’s inauguration in mind, here’s an image from another inauguration in DC’s past, President Noel Johnston’s in 1964. The ceremony was held outdoors in late October; notice the bare trees. The DC choir is leading the procession, with faculty following the flag carriers. Whitney Hall can be seen in the background, and Dana is unseen but to the photographer’s right. People seated in the left background are waiting for the ceremony to begin.
