Fifty years after John F. Kennedy’s assassination, his legacy still enthralls the nation. With The Kennedy Years, a posthumous memoir from Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe, readers get an inside look into how America’s Camelot was born. The book's never-before-seen images show the beloved former president in his most public and private moments—on the campaign trail, working at the White House, and with Jackie and his children.
John and Jacqueline Kennedy were virtually unknown in much of the U.S. in the late fall of 1959, when he began to search for support. Here, they are having breakfast with Steve Smith, John’s brother-in-law, in a small town in Oregon. They had spent the night before at the Let ‘Er Buck Motel.
