Photojournalist: the Career of Jimmy Hare

Excerpt

The Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin acquired the photographic archive of James H. Hare in 1959. Consisting of thousands of photographs, the collection provides extensive coverage of an active journalistic career that spanned more than three decades. From the Hare collection more than one hundred photographs have been selected that illustrate Hare's skill as a photographer, his uncanny knack for being present at important events, and the turbulent period through which he did his most celebrated work. In 1940 Hare was the subject of a colorful, fast-paced biography, but there has been no comprehensive study of his professional life or of his contributions to the development of American photojournalism. The text that accompanies Hare's pictures attempts to trace the high points of his reportorial activity and to provide an analysis of the cultural and historical context in which he operated.

We owe special thanks to members of the Hare family for documents and biographical information, and to Joe Coltharp and Roy Flukinger of the Humanities Research Center for their indispensable assistance and thoughtful cooperation. The staffs of the Main Library of the University of Texas at Austin, Duke University Library, Brooklyn Public Library, and the Library of Congress also provided invaluable help.
