|The Grave Site of John F. Kennedy - 1966|
The photograph of the president's first grave site was taken with my "World's Fair" camera in the summer of 1966.
This initial grave site was 20 feet by 30 feet and was surrounded by a white picket fence. After more than 16 million visitors to Kennedy's grave site in three years, it was determined that a larger plot was needed. To honor the memory of the president, 3.2 acres were set aside for the grave area and accommodations for the visiting public.
