About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

President Kennedy: 1962

President Kennedy: 1962

1962 at a Washington Senator's game. My father is in the background. He was a member of congress from Connecticut. View full size

JFK at the All Star Game

The White Sox player is Luis Aparicio. The Cardinal player is Stan Musial. Others from left are House Speaker John McCormack, Vice President Lyndon Johnson, unknown, and possibly Senator Hubert Humphrey. The man between Kennedy and Aparicio probably is Commissioner of Baseball Ford Frick. Peoples Drug Stores were taken over by CVS some time ago.

1962 All Star game

Since the scoreboard shows National and American rather than Senators and another team, I believe this was taken Tuesday July 10, 1962 at the All Star game. Tickets (some on ebay where I got the date and time) show first pitch was at 1 PM and the National League beat the American League 3-1. Of the other folks present I can only be certain of Lyndon Johnson. One of the other politicians could be Hubert Humphrey. I have no idea who the White Sox player is but suspect Stan Musial of the St Louis Cardinals is the other ballplayer.

The People's Choice

How serendipitous, the ad for Shorpy's favorite drug store.

Probably not a Senators game

The scoreboard shows "National" vs. "American." JFK threw out the first ball in a '62 AS game that was held in DC. (Two games were played 1959-62.) The NLers won 3-1. The players look like Luis Aparicio and Stan Musial.

1962 All Star Game

The scoreboard indicates National League vs American League. The 1962 All Star game was played in Washington, and President Kennedy was there.
