Cecil W. Stoughton's Personal, Unpublished Photo of LBJ's Inauguration Aboard Air Force One, With Jackie Kennedy Being Comforted

Silver gelatin photo belonging to John F. Kennedy's White House photographer, Cecil W. Stoughton, who captured the iconic photo of Lyndon B. Johnson's inauguration aboard Air Force One after JFK was assassinated. Although Stoughton published only one image from the ceremony, he captured approximately 16 more, of which this is one: following LBJ's swearing-in, Jackie Kennedy is comforted before she left the stateroom aboard AF1. All the people in the room, including LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson, look on with palpable grief. This unpublished photo is from the personal collection of Stoughton, who said that while he was uncomfortable taking the photos, he believed he needed to document it as an important record of history. Glossy photo measures 10'' x 8'', marked ''18'' in red pencil on the verso, and perhaps also initialed by Stoughton on verso. Near fine condition.
