Raymond D'Addario was one of a few photographers assigned by the Army Pictorial Service to document the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, Germany. In November, 1945, 21 senior Nazi officials took their seats in Courtroom 600 in the Palace of Justice. Ray’s photograph of the main defendants sitting in the docket surrounded by U.S. military guards has become the iconic symbol of the trial.
One of Robert H. Jackson's greatest mentors was his high school English teacher Mary R. Willard. She had a profound impact on his character.... a character that would carry him far and influence our Nation and the world. Jackson often referred to his relationship with Mary as one of the most important of his life, and their friendship lasted until her death in 1931.
