David Douglas Duncan

David Douglas Duncan, a photojournalist and author, donated his entire archive to the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Visitors can click on "About the Archive" to read a letter that explains learn why the Kansas-born photographer, who had never even stepped foot in Austin, decided to donate his tremendous collection to the Center. The web exhibition that resulted from his donation more than ten years ago offers an impressive introduction to his work. A multi-page "Biography" and photographic "Timeline" offer visitors a great introduction to this long-lived and prolific photographer. The "Gallery" is beautifully arranged, organized into some of the following topics: "War", "Picasso", "Dogs", "U.S. Political Conventions", "Portraits", "World of Islam", "LIFE" (the magazine), and "Russia". The "Multimedia" link has a video and an audio feature that were used in exhibitions in 1999, one of which is an excerpt of an interview about working for LIFE magazine, and the other which are audio recordings from when he was covering the Vietnam War.
