Tom joined the old Washington Star in 1953 at age 17. It was a 14-year career that saw him cover a lot of the nation's triumph and tragedy. He made a beautiful, poignant image of a shrouded Jacqueline Kennedy hugging her children at their father's gravesite – choosing to go tight rather than do what everyone else did – go wide to include the eternal flame marking the President's resting place.
