Intimate Snapshots of the Kennedy Family From Nanny Maud Shaw

These photos were owned by the Kennedys nanny, Maud Shaw, who retired from her position in 1965. Shaw was the nanny to Caroline and John Kennedy for seven years, a period which included the administration of President John F. Kennedy.

The photos are part of Shaw’s personal collection of Kennedy mementos. They feature a variety of candid pictures of the First Lady and her two children, including shots at the beach, leading a pony, and other family moments.
