The Ollie Atkins Photograph Collection
Presents more than 300 photographs taken by Oliver Atkins, a Saturday Evening Post photographer from 1945 to 1968. Atkins then became President Richard M. Nixon's personal photographer and chief White House photographer until the president's resignation. The photographs, selected from an archive of more than 57,000 images donated to George Mason University Libraries, mostly document presidents from Eisenhower to Nixon and political figures, both national and international. In addition, the site offers photos of celebrities and cultural figures, and includes sections on "American Life at Mid-Century" and "Demonstrations and Marches." Valuable for those studying images produced by the press and the government in the post-World War II period.
