From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
had been [photographed] by Karsh and he was very unhappy with
it. So I was sent [by the University of California Press] to do
him. Bowles looked more like we would think of a football coach.
He had this tremendous jaw, very, very strong type, rugged face.
I don't know what Karsh did. I never saw the picture but
whatever he did it made Bowles pretty upset about it. In mine, I
think I was just lucky. I got a [really] good picture. I guess
he appreciated that because he sent me two other people, one of
which being Dean Acheson.
