Ultimate Insiders: White House Photographers and How They Shape History


This is the third program in the Mid-Century Master lecture series.


White House photographers have developed amazing access to the presidents during the past half-century. In fact, the most effective official White House photographers have morphed into ultimate insiders within the American presidency, allowed to observe and take pictures of nearly everything a Chief Executive does related to the job, and often witness the most personal moments of triumph and defeat, joy and anguish. Award-winning White House correspondent Ken Walsh tells their stories, emphasizing their personal observations and visual histories of the presidents whom the photographers got to know so well. Ken's talk is richly illustrated with iconic photos.
