Remembering a Fourth of July Spent with Bobby Kennedy

Fourth of July weekend in 1966: I flew to Boise, Idaho, to photograph Bobby Kennedy’s family vacation on the Snake River, called the River of New Return. Life magazine had been given the precise location of the Kennedy campsite, and, lucky for me, the Life photographer Enrico Sarsini and I were on the same plane to Boise. He was a jovial sort and told me to come along with him. I have to admit that after working on London’s extremely competitive Fleet Street I would not have been so generous and would have kept the campsite location to myself.
