Summary, etc.:
"The world was shocked and frightened when President John F. Kennedy was gunned down by an assassin in 1963...When Kennedy's vice president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, took the presidential oath of office on Air Force One just hours after the assassination, the White House photographer was there. Cecil Stoughton's iconic photo showed the world that the smooth and orderly transfer of power had occurred. His photo helped ease the shock, tension, and fear in an anxious country."--page [4] of cover.
