Sammy Davis Jr. and Richard Nixon

Pres. Nixon w/ Sammy Davis, Jr., new member of Nat'l. Advisory Council on Economic Opportunity

Talk about an odd couple. Davis Jr. was in attendance back in 1963 for the March on Washington (we posted a photo earlier).

Here, Nixon is granting Sammy Davis, Jr. membership to the National Advisory Council on Economic Opportunity in 1975.
