Cornell Capa first encountered John F. Kennedy during the Wisconsin primary while working on a story for Life magazine on the nature of American politics. After Kennedy secured his party's nomination at the Democratic National Convention, Capa covered his campaign. When Kennedy was elected, Capa was inspired to create a book on the first hundred days of his presidency that became Let Us Begin: The First 100 Days of the Kennedy Administration, often cited as the first example of "instant history."
Accompanying an exhibition of the same title, JFK for President includes more than 100 images, many never previously published, including rarely seen color images.
This title is out of print and out of stock.
