During the summer of 1976, New York City hosted both the Democratic National Convention and OpSail. A New York Times initiative aimed at improving the city's image hired young people to meet and greet tourists throughout the city while distributing copies of the Times. This apron was worn by the donor as part of the Times initiative.
