George Romney, 1965

American businessman and Republican Party politician George Romney was photographed on this day, December 1, in 1965. He was photographed during his tenure as Governor of Michigan, and Karsh’s Sitting notes say he was photographed for “Rockwell Standard and American Trucking Assn.” Rockwell was a major American manufacturing conglomerate involved in aircraft, the space industry, defense and commercial electronics, components in the automotive industry, printing presses, avionics and industrial products.

Karsh photographed several people for Rockwell Standard – see the other Sitters here.
