Biographical Note

Ronald T. Bennett began his career as a newspaper photographer at the Oregon Journal, later working for United Press International (UPI), in Los Angeles and Washington D.C., the San Diego Union and the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government. During his decades-long career, Bennett photographed presidential administrations from Kennedy to Bush, and covered many notable news stories of the era, including the Watts Riots; the Sharon Tate murders and Charles Manson; anti-Vietnam War demonstrations; the bombing of the U.S. Capitol; Watergate; the return of POWs from Vietnam; Richard Nixon's resignation; the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island; the eruption of Mount St. Helens; the fall of the Shah of Iran; the space program; Hollywood actors; the Olympic Games and many other sporting events; and politicians and political campaigns.

While at UPI, Bennett was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his photographs of the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. He has received numerous other photo honors, including awards from the National Headliners, White House News Photographers, National Press Photographers, World Press Photo, California News Photographers and Los Angeles News Photographers. Bennett retired in 2010, donating his archive to the Briscoe Center in 2013.
