Fitch Comrades, 1966-2013 247 items
In 1964, 25-year-old Bob Fitch began photographing the vibrant political activities emerging in the San Francisco Bay Area. He never imagined that fifty years later he would have created one of the principal photo archives of the nation's nonviolent political movement leaders, workers and events. In addition to the more prominent people and events featured in the archives, his life journey was intersected and influenced by numerous peace and justice colleagues and friends whose snapshot images are displayed in this gallery. Among those depicted are politicians, musicians, activists, scientists, photojournalists, comedians, and clergy, all of whom crossed paths with Bob Fitch.
