Rare 1939 photograph of young John F. Kennedy as he headed for Europe to prepare for his honors thesis at Harvard. The trip would change his life as it took place on the eve of all out war in Europe and helped shape his ideals for the future. A powerful and important piece of photography, this is one of his earliest images picturing just John Kennedy and not part of a group or family shot that we have ever seen. Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
