The Nixon Years
President Nixon is lost
|After I had completed
a photo session with the President in San Clemente he asked me if I was
satisfied with the way my book project was going. I of course stated
the obvious: that I would like more opportunities to photograph him.
To my surprise I was informed shortly afterwards that I could fly with
him and his family and staff on the presidential helicopter from San Clemente
to El Toro Marine Base in southern California.
Mrs. Nixon sat directly across from the President, but they never spoke. Occasionally, lost in his own thoughts, he would gaze meditatively out the window.
It was interesting how detached the President was from everyone else on the helicopter. The others spoke or laughed together, but the President spoke to no one except briefly to Commander Larson, who gave him a folder of documents to work on.
