Twenty-five years ago this November, what began as a routine chore for Cecil Stoughton became the most crucial assignment of his career. As the President’s official photographer, he was in the motorcade when John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and because he knew his job as well as he did, we have a moving pictorial record of that day—much of it never before published.

We hope you enjoy our work.
