Henry Grossman '58 to be profiled by '60 Minutes'

Henry Grossman

President John F. Kennedy

As a young photographer during the early 1960s, Henry Grossman ’58 enjoyed unusual access to President John F. Kennedy and the Beatles. The photos he was able to capture — startling in their directness and intimacy, and many of them seldom seen — will be featured by “60 Minutes” in a segment that will air this Sunday, Nov. 10.

Grossman, whose life and work was profiled in a Brandeis Magazine cover story last spring, began his illustrious career behind the lens while he was still a student at Brandeis. He took his first portrait of Kennedy when the future president visited the Brandeis campus in 1960 on the day he announced his run for the White House.
CBS News has posted on its website a preview of the Grossman interview, which can be seen here.
The “60 Minutes” broadcast is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. EST (though it may be delayed if the NFL game that precedes it runs long).
An extra segment on Grossman will be available for viewing at 60 Minutes Overtime after the television broadcast has ended.
