There is a short clip on the Robert Frost Voices and Visions #5
Video. They show him reciting a few lines from the Gift Outright
at the ceremony. JFK is sitting behind him.
We have it in if you need to Interlibrary Loan. Let me know.

Subject: Robert Frost Inaugural Poem

I've been looking for either a video or audio of Robert Frost at JFK's
Inauguration. I've learned that he wrote "Dedication" for the inauguration
but actually recited "The Gift Outright" which had been written much
earlier. Am I searching in vain?
