Photo Editor John Morris, Who Created Our Images Of WWII And Vietnam, Has Died At 100

Morris, who edited Robert Capo’s D-Day pictures and got them to Life in time for its first post-D-Day issue, was photo editor of The New York Times for six years during the Vietnam War. “He successfully argued for front-page display of Eddie Adams’s photograph of a Saigon police chief shooting a suspected Vietcong insurgent in the head. It appeared as the lead picture on Feb. 2, 1968, and became one of the most indelible images to emerge from the war.”
