Joseph Zaytoun was no stranger to the spotlight. Raised in North Carolina, Joe served in the U.S. Army and worked hard to become a successful businessman. He has received awards, honors and plaques from the State Board of Elections to the Symphony Society. Check out the Zaytoun Collection for more photos including one with Governor Sanford.
And in the early 1960s, he met with President John F. Kennedy. The notation on the photograph is difficult to read, so we don’t know why he met with the President.
If anyone from the Zaytoun family can tell us, send us a comment to our blog or Facebook. We will add it to our files.
