Jacques Lowe caught this image, a favorite of Jack’s, during an April 1960 stop in Charleston, West Virginia, just days before Kennedy won the primary. JFK has been claimed by a supporter and is enjoying it, as local pols and reporters follow along. Years later, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg presented a copy of this photo to President Bill Clinton, who put it in his “Kennedy corner,” a collection of Kennedy family memorabilia in Clinton’s private study on the second floor of the White House.
