WASHINGTON (AP) - The Newseum in Washington will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy next year with a new film and exhibits chronicling the 35th president's life.
One exhibit being announced Wednesday involves a restoration of photographs by Kennedy's personal photographer. "Creating Camelot" will feature the work of Jacques Lowe whose photos span from Kennedy's 1958 Senate re-election campaign through his early White House years.
Lowe's original negatives were stored in a World Trade Center vault and were lost in the 9/11 attacks. The Newseum restored more than 70 images from original prints and contact sheets kept elsewhere for rare public display.
The Newseum is also creating an exhibit recalling the media's reporting of the assassination and the film "A Thousand Days" to examine the Kennedy presidency.
