About this Exhibit

This exhibition highlighted significant episodes from a book with the same title, which was the first ever fully documented account of the Associated Press, written by 13 of their reporters. The exhibit of 18 panels covered war, trials, aviation, sports, civil rights, foreign correspondents, disasters, the White House, and the AP staff.

As the world’s largest news-gathering organization, the enduring role of the Associated Press, along with their Pulitzer Prize-winning images, has proven to be the definitive comprehensive source of breaking news. Many of the AP photographs are instantly recognizable and conjure memories of where you were on that date and time. These images are often the ones that are forever seared into our hearts and minds.
