The Krushchevs' 13-day visit to the USA in September, 1959 followed on Vice President Nixon's earlier visit to the Soviet Union in the same year. Premier and Mrs. Krushchev brought their 3 adult children (a son and 2 daughters) and son-in-law on the tour that included New York City, Washington DC, California (IBM Corp. in San Jose and Twentieth Century Fox studio in Los Angeles), and the Swine Research Center at Iowa State University. No doubt, the SF to LA train trip was a high point of the trip.
