Edward Kennedy, 1968

American lawyer and politician Edward “Ted” Kennedy died on this day, August 25, in 2009 (b. 1932). Kennedy served as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts for almost 47 years, from 1962 until his death in 2009. Karsh photographed his elder brother Senator John F. Kennedy and John’s wife Jacqueline in 1957, and John F. Kennedy solo in 1960, shortly before he was elected president. He photographed Robert Kennedy in 1962 while he was attorney general in his elder brother’s administration.
