Published to commemorate
the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s election as
president of the United States, this book is a revealing and
intimate portrait of a leader, husband, and father as seen
through the lens of Cecil Stoughton, the first official
White House photographer. Stoughton’s close rapport with the
president and first lady gave him extraordinary access to
the Oval Office, the Kennedys’ private quarters and homes,
to state dinners, cabinet meetings, diplomatic trips, and
Stoughton’s unparalleled body of photographs, most rarely or
never before reproduced, and supported by a deeply
thoughtful narrative by political historian Richard Reeves,
Portrait of Camelot is an unprecedented portrayal of
the power, politics, and warmly personal aspects of
Camelot’s 1,036 days.
packaged with a DVD created exclusively for this book,
containing color and black-and-white film footage Stoughton
created of the Kennedy family in the White House, in Hyannis
Port, and on holidays.
