President Kennedy on Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island

"When time came to play, Kennedy could block out the strains of the moment and devote every inch of mind and body to leisure as intensively as he had to work, completely shaking off and shutting out the worries of the world beyond." --Theodore Sorensen, the president's speechwriter and biographer President Kennedy at the wheel of the Coast Guard Yacht "Manitou," Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. August, 1962. (Photo from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library)
