Rare Kennedy Photographs on Display at Evergreen House

Starting April 7, Evergreen House will put five days in the life of John and Jacqueline Kennedy on display in an exhibition of rare black and white photographs known as Camelot at Dawn: John and Jacqueline Kennedy in Georgetown, May 1954. The exhibit runs through June 30 at Evergreen House, 4545 North Charles St. in Baltimore.

This collection of photographs by Orlando Suero is also featured in the newly published book of the same title by Anne Garside of The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University (Johns Hopkins University Press, Nov. 2001). Together, they serve as the only major photo essay of the Kennedys for the year 1954 and are a time capsule of their early married life evocative of America's last age of innocence.

The photos paint an idyllic portrait of happy young newlyweds. Suero captured Jack Kennedy at work in his Senate office, painting in oils in the backyard, and tossing a football with Bobby and Ethel Kennedy. Jackie Kennedy is shown attending class at Georgetown University, helping Jack in his Senate office, proudly framing the pictures he has painted, and preparing for her first formal dinner party.

The photographs are drawn from the Max G. Lowenherz Collection of Kennedy Photographs in the Archives of the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University. Garside, Peabody's director of public information, is curator of the exhibition, which is underwritten by Mercantile-Safe Deposit & Trust Co.

The exhibition Camelot At Dawn: John and Jacqueline Kennedy in Georgetown, May 1954 will be open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission to the exhibition is $3.
