From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Chester Bowles 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.
