Before coming to Indiana University in 1958, Elwood Martin "Barney" Cowherd was named National News Photographer of the Year in 1948. He worked as a copyboy for the Louisville Courier-Journal before becoming a staff photographer there in 1941. He returned to that position after serving as a U.S. Navy photographer during World War II.
Some of Cowherd's best photographs appeared in a book entitled Barney Cowherd: Photographer which shows some 166 photographs from Cowherd's career including images housed here in the IU Archives.
