Maurice recently met Sergei Khruschev (son of Nikita) at a Georgetown event. Jon remembers being taken as a small boy by his mother, Maggie, to see Nikita's motorcade drive past. Is this a true memory or a false memory? A little bit of online research suggests that this event must have taken place in late September 1959. To jog Jon's and Maggie's memories the blog is helpfully including an Associate Press photo of Ike and Nikita together in 1959.
