Barkley was on stage, as was Sen. Frank Graham. Terry Sanford, then working for the Graham campaign, had worked with Leo Jenkins, then a dean at ECC, to arrange the political event. Graham was, in the end, not reelected. Betty Spier donated this photo. This occasion was a grand beginning for a political friendship between Jenkins and Sanford that later climaxed with the Kennedy rally on the ECC campus in Sept. 1960.
