Strange But True: Thomas D. McAvoy, Life Magazine Photographer Who Died In 1966, Takes Picture For Today's NYT!
We want to wish a tentative "welcome back!" to Thomas D. McAvoy, who is credited with taking the above photograph for the lede story on today's NYT website.
We say "tentative" because McAvoy was reported dead by the NYT on February 13, 1966. McAvoy is well-known to photography buffs as one of the first four staff photographers hired for the first issue of Life Magazine in 1936, along with Alfred Eisenstaedt and Margaret Bourke-White.
