Khruschev and Nixon at the Moscow Fair. Cold War everywhere.

On this particular day of September in 1959, news centered around the goings on in Moscow and the conclusion of the cultural exchange event, The Moscow Fair. The Cold War had attempted a thaw in 1959, with events like this taking place both in the U.S. and in Russia. This event was also significant as it became the stage for the famous impromptu Khruschev/Nixon Kitchen debate in July.

Here is a recap of the Fair, as presented in a Special News Report from CBS Radio on September 13, 1959.
