Summary "A "shooter" for the Associated Press for thirty-three years, Henry D. Burroughs was assigned to the Washington bureau, and his photos appeared frequently in newspapers around the world, as well as on the covers of Life and other magazines. Close-ups of History is both an eyewitness account of history and a memoir - a book that brings special moments into the viewfinder as Burroughs turns his trained photographer's eye to reflect his highly cultivated sense of news. Close-ups of History is a collection of more than one hundred photos that will amaze all who follow world events."--BOOK JACKET.
