There is an interesting story about how Cornell Capa succeeded in establishing a major archival institution in New York City - with the financial assistance of Jacqueline Kennedy (President John F. Kennedy's widow) - and the temporary use of my 500 print portfolio of documentary photographs on The American People.
In 1969, John Szarkowski from MoMA sent me over to meet with Cornell and during our discussion of his difficulties, I made this documentary portrait.
