Photographer. While working as a photographer for United Press International, he was assigned to photograph the funeral of President John F. Kennedy. He was fortunate to obtain the only still copy of the young John Kennedy's salute to his father's passing caisson. The picture became an iconic symbol of the times. Stearns, who had served four years in the United States Air Force, left the UPI in the 1970s. Opening a studio photography business in Annapolis, he continued his career until his death at the age of 76. (bio by: Thom Painter)
