Senator McCarthy, with his wife Jean and nephew Kelly Kornely, inspect the McCarthy homestead in the Town of Grand Chute, Wisconsin, in February, 1955. McCarthy purchased the house and 140-acre farm from his brother Howard, saying that he intended to make the farm his home.
Senator McCarthy feeds his daughter, Tierney Elizabeth, as his wife Jean looks on. The photo was taken a few hours after the McCarthys adopted the five-weeks-old child and brought her to their home in Washington, D. C., on January 13, 1957.
The flag-draped coffin containing the body of Senator McCarthy is carried up the steps of the U.S. Capitol for funeral services in the Senate chamber after an earlier service at St. Matthew's Cathedral, May 6, 1957.
