At a Beatles press conference on May 14, 1968 at New York’s Americana hotel, announcing the launch of Apple Records, Jack Robinson photographed John Lennon. Liverpool-born Lennon was one of the most accomplished school dropouts in history, co-founder of the Beatles, one half of the most prominent songwriting team in twentieth-century pop, a musician, artist, writer, and fervent anti-war activist, whose life ended prematurely at 40 when he was gunned down by a mindless misfit in New York. The Beatles “The White Album” was recorded from May through October and released in November of the same year.
