290) Henry Dashiell Burroughs, AP B&W still photographer, rode in Cam-era Car #2 in motorcade:
Position in Motorcade

We, the pool, were dismayed to find our pool car shoved back to about #11 position in the motorcade. We protested, but it was too late.

When we ar-rived, Air Force One had been cordoned off by Army troops, but the ramp was still in place. Before we could worry about what to do, the plane door opened and out popped Maj. Cecil Staughten [sic]. He saw us stand-ing by and came over. He had a roll of film in his hand, and announced that he had just photographed the swearing-in of President Johnson, and asked me if AP would process the pictures and pool them with UPI. Can-cellare and I readily agreed and that's how that famous picture aboard Air Force One was transmitted to the world. Hope this is of some help.


Notes: Cecil William Stoughton photographs President Johnson—hands the rolls of film to Henry to Process:  Henry is the first person to view the photograph that is now a part of major history

Close-ups of History is a collection of more than one hundred photos that will amaze all who follow world events.
