The Wilson Times: Burk Uzzle photo archive headed to UNC library

The Wilson Times: Burk Uzzle photo archive headed to UNC library. “In front of Uzzle’s lens were Robin Williams spontaneously ad-libbing, Bill Gates sitting on the top of a boardroom table, Ethel and Robert Kennedy attending the funeral of a slain president, friends releasing Janis Joplin’s ashes on a beach, Hugh Hefner sizing up three bunnies, thousands of young people tuning in at Woodstock and thousands of other historically notable subjects. A team of archivists from the Kohler Foundation and Barton College is currently cataloging some 2,800 prints and 75,000 negatives from the 81-year-old photographer’s collection to be gifted to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Wilson Library.” There are plans to digitize the collection.
