For one of the most photographed men in history, JFK was notably impatient about “posing” for pictures.  The quicker the ordeal was over, the better.  Hence, candid glimpses of the private Kennedy were rare, once he had plunged into the maelstrom of the Presidency.  But occasionally, Capt. Cecil Stoughton, the U.S. Army Signal Corps photographer attached to the White House, impromptu-recorded some family doing, intended only for family enjoyment. From the first, Caroline and he were fair game for any professional with a camera.  But in no other photographs does JFK’s tender relation with his daughter shine more luminously than in these off-guard candid photographs, taken that final summer in Hyannis Port on board the Honey Fitz.
