Parker Lecture - Sally Matson "Margaret Bourke-White, Courageous Photographer"


03-14-2013 7:00pm - 8:00pm




“To do all the things that women never do”. In this presentation you will hear about Margaret Bourke-White's adventures climbing on skyscrapers, leaning out of airplanes, going into war zones. She photographed Stalin, Churchill, Patton and Gandhi. She had an indomitable spirit and the lead story and cover for the inaugural issue of Life magazine in November, 1936. Her thousands of photographs continue to hold our attention as they reveal her courage and compassion. This event is part of the Moses Greeley Parker Lectures. More information available at
