On November 30, 2018, George H.W. Bush passed away at 94; he was the oldest living former United States president. While the Bush dynasty looms large over American politics, photos of the Bush family prove they are very similar to many other families around the country. Bush family photos show the clan on vacation, posing for the holidays, and enjoying the company of their beloved pets.

From the 1950s onward, the Bush family has played a significant role in US politics as steadfast Republicans. Bush Sr. served as an ambassador, a congressman, and vice president, all before serving as commander-in-chief. These pictures of George H.W. Bush and his family showcase his career through the perspective of those closest to him, painting a different picture than the one most people see on television or in history textbooks.
