About this Item

This American photographer was a staff photographer for the "New York Times" from 1945 to 1985, being the Chief Photographer of their Washington Bureau; his most famous image is perhaps "The Loneliest Job," a dramatic full-length portrait of a hunched over John F. Kennedy from behind, both arms leaning on a table as if supporting the weight of the world -- actually, he was reading a newspaper. Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Washington, DC on 1970 August 6 and with "First Day of Issue" boldly stamped. Single 6-cent "Eisenhower" stamp at upper right. Fine. At lower left, in blue ballpoint, Tames signs quite large and bold. Tames closeup of an older, pensive Ike is one of the most famous images of the president. With small portion of original transmittal envelope. Quite unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 25541
