Stanley Tretick (1921 –1999) was raised in Washington, D.C. but was born in Baltimore. He was a photojournalist who worked for People magazines, Look, and UPI. Tretick graduated from Central High School in 1940. He covered all the presidents from Harry S. Truman through George H. W. Bush. He is best known today for John F. Kennedy’s photographs that he took of 1960 campaign and presidency. He also did stills for “All the President's Men” and many other films. Tretick worked for a short time as a copy boy for The Washington Post, after which he joined the Marines. Trained as a photographer, he worked as a camera-man and served in the Pacific during the Second World War. He also joined Acme News Pictures during the Korean War and photographed the combat.

In 1951, his photographs were among the Korean War photos that were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in the exhibit "Korea - The Impact of War." Military Times selected his photo of a soldier as one of the 100-most-enduring images captured in combat. In 1952, Tretick moved to United Press, where he covered the White House, Capitol Hill, and the presidential campaigns of the 50s. The following public collections hold Tretick's work: Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley, CA, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., and John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Boston, MA. His art is also found in many galleries, institutions and private homes. They are in great demand, so quite a number of collectors stock them.
