Reon E. Swaim Clip 1: The Magic of the World's Fair
Collection: Queens Museum Oral History Project Records at the Archives at Queens Library: Reon E. Swaim
Description: Reon Swaim describes the 1964 World's Fair as brilliant and exciting at night once the lights came on at dusk. He notes that world travel was rare in the 1960's, which made the international exhibits thrilling. He also remembers visiting the Spanish Pavilion with a friend from high school, where they saw Goya's Maja Desnuda, which made an impression on them as a risque painting.
