Geology team at the Grand Canyon   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: A team of geologists working at the Grand Canyon, photographed by Joe Munroe, 1965. With its size and diverse ecosystems, the Grand Canyon is a hot spot for geologists and the science community as a whole. President Theodore Roosevelt fought hard to protect the site and visited it many times in his life. It was the 17th National Park designated in the country. 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.
