U.S. Political Conventions

Republican National Convention, Miami Beach, August 3-8, 1968
previous / index / next

Facial portrait of Richard Nixon looking pensive, his right hand blocking his mouth.

During a dangerous barrage of questions at his first Miami Beach press conference at the Republican National Convention in August 1968, Richard Nixon replies with answers "sufficient to be news" but perhaps not "the deeper answers he kept to himself."

Title derived from Self-Portrait: U.S.A., p. 57.
