The Newseum

This is a picture of the Newseum’s exhibit of photographer Bill Biggart’s equipment and personal belongings. It was heart-wrenching to see these displayed alongside his last pictures and a video of his heroic wife. Mr. Biggart lost his life on September 11th; his story is incredible…click here to read more. The exhibit was stunningly moving.

The Newseum is spectacular. Jenny was right–I was awed. I think I may join so I can go back again and again–because there was not enough time to see all I wanted to see. And, I didn’t even find Garrett Graff’s notebook (even though Jenny very kindly tried to help me via Twitter…but unfortunately, we had already left).

One Response to “The Newseum”

  1. Great post Beck! Makes me want to go and see the place. I can now tell my friends that I went to school under a prof who is now featured in a museum in Washington, DC. Since I am as old as dirt anyway they will probably think my prof, being in a museum as he is, was probably born in 1890!

    Life is too funny.
