Robert Kennedy, March 1968
U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy rides the crest of a wave of outstretched hands at Monterey Airport on Sunday, March 24, 1968. Seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency, the younger brother of the late President John F, Kennedy and his entourage of almost 100 campaign advisers and reporters stopped over at Monterey Peninsula Airport on a flight from San Jose to Los Angeles. The Highway patrol estimated the crowd at 8,000.
