20th century AP staffers

Founded in New York in 1846, The Associated Press has employed thousands of men and women over the years to cover the world’s most important stories. AP journalists in the field have covered breaking news from around the globe and told important stories with in-depth investigative journalism. This gallery contains photographs of writers, photographers and other support staff who have at times risked their own lives to report the news.  

Some of the photos in this collection are from the AP Corporate Archives.  Collections in the Corporate Archives document the work of AP staffers around the world, covering both news and administrative operations.
