June 15, 1959: Vice President Nixon shakes hands with a spaceman at Disneyland, which opened six new attractions, including the Matterhorn, the monorail (capable of 80 mph!) and the submarine rides. Then the family goes to Knott's Berry Farm, where Walter Knott escorts them to a reserved room at the restaurant. No mention of whether they panned for gold!
Hey, it's a Chuck Hillinger byline!
When it opened, the Matterhorn was the tallest structure in Orange County!
Tricia and Julie Nixon cut the ribbon for the monorail!
