David Douglas Duncan - My Heroes (cont.)

David Douglas Duncan has covered a diverse range of subjects - from the United States Marines in three wars to the paintings of Picasso and the treasures of the Kremlin. As a photographer for Life, Duncan won the Overseas Press Club Award for picture reporting from abroad. He also won the United States Camera Gold Medal Award for This is War!.

Arguably the greatest of all war photographers.
He gave the royalties from This Is War! to the Marine Corps Fund for widows and children of the dead, and he turned over the proceeds from I Protest to the families of marines killed at Khe Sanh.To visit the David Douglas Duncan Online Archive click here.
