Grosvenor's Camera

Gilbert Grosvenor, the first full-time employee of the National Geographic Society, tests out a new Speed Graphic camera in 1913. But this photo wouldn't appear in print until the October 1963 issue, which celebrated the Society's 75th anniversary. By that point, Grosvenor had served as both director and president of the Society, and editor of the magazine until his retirement in 1954.
