Vice President Richard Nixon “shakes hands” with a 40-pound white turkey, November 14, 1955, at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The big bird, a gift from the turkey raisers, is destined for President Eisenhower’s Thanksgiving dinner at his Gettysburg, Pa. farm. In the background, left to right, are: Leslie Hubbard of Lancaster, Pa.; Chester Housh of Elkton, Va., who raised the turkey; and Vic Pringle of Broadway, Va. (AP Photo/William J. Smith)
