About the author (2006)

Gary Haynes joined United Press International as a photographer in Detroit in 1958. By 1969 he was UPI's assistant managing editor of photography in New York, and later that year was made a national picture editor for The New York Times. From inside UPI, as a shooter and a manager, Haynes saw nearly every UPI picture to move on the network for close to eleven years.

Walter Cronkite was a correspondent for UPI during World War II and then served as an evening news anchor on CBS for nearly 20 years, during which he became known as "the most trusted man in America."
