Bye Bye "Mr Flower"

Bye Bye

Bernie Boston, known for iconic Vietnam-era 'Flower Power' photo, dead at 74

7 hours ago

BASYE, Va. - Bernie Boston, a newspaper photographer best known for his iconic 1960s picture of a Vietnam War protester placing flowers in soldiers' gun barrels at a rally, has died.

He was 74.

Boston died Tuesday of a rare blood disease at his home in Basye, where he retired in 1994 after working for the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Star and the Dayton Daily News newspapers. His death was announced by the White House News Photographers Association, for which he served four terms as president.

Boston's photograph, "Flower Power," was a runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize. He took the picture at an anti-war protest in Washington on Oct. 22, 1967.

He was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist for a 1987 photograph of Coretta Scott King unveiling a bust of her late husband, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in the U.S. Capitol.

Born in Washington, Boston graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology and served in the U.S. army before starting his news photography career in Dayton, Ohio. He moved back to Washington to work at the Star and was director of photography when the newspaper folded in 1981. He then was hired by the Los Angeles Times to establish a photo operation in the U.S. capital.

He covered every president from Harry Truman to Bill Clinton.

After retiring, Boston and his wife, Peggy, co-owned the Bryce Mountain Courier, a monthly newspaper.

1970: helicopter cockpit, flower sticker

Is it just me, or is it strange to see a hippie flower-power sticker on the Army-issue helmet of an American soldier piloting a helicoter over Vietnam? You certainly wouldn't see the same thing on a solider in Iraq today, would you?

I don't know if it has anything to do with riding as a passenger in this helicopter during the war, but my dad does not enjoy flying at all to this day.
