-- Fifty years ago this month, John. F. Kennedy was elected the 35th president of the United States, the youngest man ever to serve in the office at age 43. During his presidency, American society came to reflect the very qualities that defined Kennedy himself: young, energetic and optimistic.
Throughout Kennedy's electoral campaign, photographers were there to capture every moment of the young senator's ascendancy.
