Presidents
Richard Nixon. Gerald Ford. Jimmy Carter. Ronald Reagan. George H.W. Bush. Bill Clinton. We chose them to lead our country, and we came to know them through pictures. Photographs gave us access to both their public and private lives. From Nixon waving farewell on the South Lawn to Clinton sharing a tender moment with his family, these images are forever etched into the minds of a nation.
