Joe Munroe Archive
Description: Cowboys during an evening of poker in a line shack, photographed by Joe Munroe in 1963. Cowboys would be out on the prairies for extended periods of time during the cattle roundup season. At night they would get together in little houses like this one on the 3V Ranch near Seligman, Arizona. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
