Bob Daugherty

Daugherty started his career with the Marian (IN) Chronicle when he was in high school. From there he joined the Indianapolis Star for several years and then began his 43 year career with AP. He eventually became AP’s assistant bureau chief and director for AP State Photo Center in Washington, a position he retired from on 2007.

Daugherty photographed nine presidents – Truman, Eisenhower, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton. He always worked hard to persevere to be at the right place at the right time, even if it included “badgering the press secretary all day.” Just a few of his iconic photographs include President Johnson working on his speech he would not seek re-election, President Nixon on his ground-breaking trip to China and shaking hands with Premier Zhou En-Lai, President Nixon flashing the “V” sign leaving the White House on the Presidential helicopter after resigning, President Carter clasping hands with Anwar Sadat and Menechem Begin after the signing of the Middle East peace treaty, President Reagan and wife Nancy atop the Great Wall of China and in the Normandy grave site, and many other images recognized by anyone who read papers and magazines at the time.
