Robert W. Kelley (...)

took photographs

for Life magazine

when the publication

and its stable

of talented photographers

each week defined

what was important

in the world.




In 1947,

he began working for Life

and was made

a staff photographer in 1952.


He worked there until 1966.


He spent most of the 1950s

posted at the magazine's

Atlanta bureau,

and was frequently assigned

to the civil-rights

stories of the day.


His leg was broken

in 1956 in Clinton, Tenn.,

while he was trying

to escape segregationists

who did not want

to be memorialized

in the nation's

pre-eminent magazine,

said his son.
