John F. Kennedy, 1960

On this day, November 8, in 1960, John F. Kennedy became the youngest man ever to be elected president of the United States.

Karsh photographed a whole host of Kennedys, not least of all, Senator Edward Kennedy, in 1968, and Robert Kennedy, US Attorney General at the time, in 1962.

See John F. Kennedy on the cover of LIFE Magazine in 1961 and 1963.
