Many of them have been unseen for half-a-century. Tens of thousands of photographs of John F. Kennedy during his presidency were stored away as soon as they were developed. According to collector and filmmaker, Keya Morgan, Kennedy White House photographer Cecil Stoughton had them in boxes. Stoughton captured Kennedy in public and private moments.
Morgan recently bought the boxes of Stoughton's photo at auction. He plans to have them available through his website, www.lincolnimages.com. But Morgan gave CNN an exclusive sneak peek. With producer Alan Duke, Keya Morgan opened the boxes of the photos that haven't seen light in more than four decades. It's a fitting revelation as the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's inauguration approaches on January 20.
To honor that occasion, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum released 200,000 documents online. The public collection is available at jfklibrary.org
