Newspaper Photographer Bob Brown Has Captured Virginia Governors for Half a Century

From a Washington Post story by Gregory S. Schneider headlined “Virginia’s governors come and go, but Bob Brown’s camera has captured their history for half a century”:

RICHMOND — It’s probably not true that Bob Brown traded tomato plants with Thomas Jefferson or sipped bourbon with Abraham Lincoln, though you might hear such tales around Virginia’s Capitol.

But it is a fact that Brown began photographing the General Assembly for the Richmond Times-Dispatch so long ago, almost half the current members of the House of Delegates hadn’t been born.
