This January, a little over a year after Gerald Ford died at age 93, Kennerly is bringing out a long-awaited collection of his White House photographs. The book, Extraordinary Circumstances: The Presidency of Gerald R. Ford (Center for American History, University of Texas Press, $49), is a graphic reminder of what has come to be a forgotten time in American politics. For many, Gerald Ford is perhaps best recalled as Chevy Chase's clumsy alter ego on Saturday Night Live. In Kennerly's photos, Ford often comes across as the ultimate middle-aged, middle-class American family man. "What you see, that's just what he was," says Kennerly. This quintessential Everyman, pipe in mouth and bedecked in '70s-era plaid trousers, guided a nation on the brink of disaster, from the constitutional crisis of Watergate to the demoralizing American pullout from Vietnam and the surge of crippling inflation.
