On November 28, 1963, three days after President Kennedy's state funeral, Stoughton recalls that he was summoned from his family's Thanksgiving table by President Johnson, who wanted him to take his photo. The image Stoughton took shows the new president at his desk in the Oval Office, signing a print of the now famous swearing-in photo Stoughton had made aboard Air Force One barely a week before.
