Memories of World War II: Photographs from the Archives of the Associated Press
Open to the public through April 13, 2014
Almost two hundred reporters and photographers fanned out around the globe to cover World War II for The Associated Press, the world's largest news service. Five reporters lost their lives. Seven others won Pulitzer Prizes, including Joe Rosenthal, who clambered up Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi to take the flag-raising photo that became the emblem of American victory and one of the most famous photos of all time. As the main source of war news for most of the nation's newspapers, The AP offered Americans a daily view of the conflict through photographs by its own photographers and by photographers in the U.S. Armed Services, as well as images from the world press that otherwise would not have been seen. The best of these images make up this exhibition.
