Mary Alice Lakey

Description: Photograph of Mary Alice Lakey holding a camera box and several dark slides for a large-format camera. She is wearing a long striped skirt, rubber boots, trench coat and cap. Typed below the bottom of the photograph is, "AMONG FIRST LEADER PHOTOGRAPHERS - Mary Alice Lakey, now Mrs. Elson of Hetland, S.D., was one of the first staff photographers combined with her skills as a talented news reporter and feature writer. It was not unusual for her to cover tragic events or stormy weather, take pictures and go directly to a meeting without having the time to change clothing. The photography equipment was heavy and cumbersome in addition to carrying notebook and pencils. Then, as today, all reporters double as photographers on the staff. However, thanks to the versatile and lightweight 35 MM cameras, it helps to make the work easier."
