The Carter Family at the Democratic National Convention

This photograph of the Carter family was taken by Warren K. Leffler at the Democratic National Convention in New York City on July 15, 1976. In the photograph is soon-to-be president Jimmy Carter kissing his wife, Rosalynn Carter. They are surrounded by family, including President Carter's mother, Lillian, and their children Jack, James Earl III (Chip), Donnel, and Amy. Carter would go on to defeat President Gerald R. Ford in the presidential election that November and, on January 20, 1977, would be inaugurated as the 39th President of the United States.
