JFK and the camera before Dallas — and after

NEW HAVEN — The title of “A Great Crowd Had Gathered: JFK in the 1960s” dates from well before the ’60s. It comes from the Irish ballad “James Connolly,” about the revolutionary leader executed by the British after the Easter Rebellion. The song is, among other things, a testament to the endurance of mourning, that mother’s milk of Irish cultural identity.

The show runs at the Yale University Art Gallery through March 30.
