David Hume Kennerly Oral History Interview
This interview was conducted by Timothy Naftali on January 28, 2008, in Yorba Linda, California, for the Richard Nixon Presidential Library.
Photographer David Hume Kennerly recalled his coverage of Richard Nixon from his 1968 presidential campaign through his 1974 resignation. President Ford then asked him to join his White House and document his presidency. At the time, Mr. Kennerly was only in his twenties, even though he was already a veteran Vietnam combat photographer and a Pulitzer Prize winner. Other topics included the assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy and his service in Vietnam.
