Ticket to a testimonial dinner for John Chase, 1962

In 1962, John Chase was honored by a "tribute dinner" that was, according to the author of Of Time and Chase, "one of the largest and liveliest testimonial dinners for any person, political or non-political, that New Orleans has ever seen." Sponsored by the New Orleans Press Club, the event filled the International Room of the Roosevelt Hotel and was attended by such luminaries as Mayor Victor Schiro, Governor Jimmie Davis and some 1200 others. WDSU-TV president Jerry Romig dressed up as the "LIttle Man." This is a ticket to the event. The program is also available in the Louisiana Division's Vertical File.
