Photographer Burroughs honored

A South County resident and former Associated Press photographer has won the Kodak-White House News Photographers' Association Achievement Award.

Henry "Hank" Burroughs was a Washington Post and AP photographer for 40 years, covering the Nuremburg trials, the Berlin Airlift and the White House. He documented the terms of seven presidents, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Gerald R. Ford.

Now retired, Mr. Burroughs lives with his wife, Peg, on the West River where he sails, plays tennis and lectures at camera clubs and colleges.

His photographs have been on display in recent years at the Press Club in Washington and at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.
