In November of 1958, the United States Democratic Party held a speaking tour in Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks (and possibly Ketchikan) to promote its candidates for Alaskan offices. The keynote speaker of this tour was John F. Kennedy, Junior Senator of Massachusetts. Senator Kennedy was accompanied by former Governor Ernest Gruening of Alaska, E.L. Bartlett, and Governor William Egan.
