Description/Abstract

Margaret Bourke- White presented her personal and professional papers, including hundreds of prints and negatives of her photographs, to Syracuse University before her death in 1971. Following her death, the Library received additional thousands of photographs and negatives from her estate. As a result, the Bourke- White Collection at Syracuse provides an invaluable store of research materials for photographers, journalists, and historians.

Dr. Sutton has chosen in this essay to portray Margaret herself during one seven-year period ofher life, with the addition of a few photographs from the books You Have Seen Their Faces and North of the Danube, published during the same period.
