The Kennedy Years: A Memoir


Product Code: 9780847841738

Published for the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy and replete with many never-before-seen photographs, this posthumous memoir draws on previously unpublished oral histories, gallery talks, and speeches by Jacques Lowe, JFK’s official photographer.  Lowe had unprecedented access to the President’s family and inner circle. Fifty years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, it is finally possible to publish Lowe’s own, never-before-revealed account of his experiences during the Camelot years, supplemented with previously unseen material from his private files and the Kennedy Archives. Lowe captures the charisma of Kennedy relaxing at home with Jackie and daughter Caroline, engaging with the public on the campaign trail, at work in the White House, and as a leader on the world stage. Lowe’s 40,000 negatives of the Kennedy years were stored in the vaults of the World Trade Center. After 9/11—which came just months after Lowe’s death—it was learned that this priceless collection had been reduced to ashes, leaving Lowe’s original contact sheets as the only record of a most remarkable era.
