Appraised by Francis J. Wahlgren
Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office as the 36th U.S. President aboard Air Force One on November 22, 1963, just hours after President John F. Kennedy's assassination in Dallas. This iconic photograph of the swearing-in was taken by Kennedy's official White House photographer, Army Capt. Cecil W. Stoughton, who brought his own signed copy of the photo to the Orlando ROADSHOW on June 30, 2007.
