Biographical Note

A native New Yorker, Bruce Hoertel (1923-2004) enlisted in the Navy after high school, attending the Naval Photographic School then serving on the USS Cowpens during World War II. Early in his career, Hoertel worked as a news photographer for the New York Times, then transitioned to work as a cameraman for CBS News. In his work for CBS, he traveled the world filming the news, documenting President Lyndon B. Johnson's trip to Asia, South Vietnamese troops, and President Richard Nixon's trip to China. After leaving CBS in the 1970s, Hoertel returned to work as a still photographer, freelancing for Newsweek, Fortune, and the Associated Press. He retired in 1989.
