The Library houses roughly 517,000 original prints, contact sheets, negatives, transparencies, and albums that range from 1863 to the present. The bulk focuses on John F. Kennedy, but we also hold materials related to Kennedy family and administration members, the Boston area and the JFK Library, as well as Ernest Hemingway.
