Eye on history

Matthew Lewis was the first photographer at the Washington Post ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. He did so in 1975 for a portfolio of his color pictures. Now “retired” and living in Thomasville, Lewis is coming to Jackson Library to display and talk about some of his favorite photos.

The exhibition at Jackson Library is titled “Eye on History:The Photographs of Pulitzer Prize-winning Photographer Matthew Lewis.”

Columnist Jeri Rowe of the News & Record will moderate a discussion with Lewis in the Reading Room on the first floor of Jackson Library Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 5 p.m. The talk is sponsored by the Friends of the UNCG Libraries.

Lewis joined Morgan State College in 1957 and began freelancing for the Baltimore Afro-American Newspaper in 1963, covering events such as the funeral of John F. Kennedy and the 1963 March on Washington. He joined the Washington Post in 1965, according to a story in the University Libraries blog.
