Description of Pictures: Born in Wichita, Kan., Jim Lehrer moved from a newspaper career to public broadcasting and a long-term journalism partnership with Robert MacNeil in the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, now The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. He is the recipient of the National Humanities Medal, and the George Foster Peabody Broadcast Award. A prolific author, Mr. Lehrer has written two memoirs, three plays, and 14 novels including the most recent, Flying Crows (Random House, 2004). He lives with his wife, writer Kate Lehrer, in Washington, D.C.
Although she always wanted to write,
Kate Lehrer put that ambition on hold until her three children were grown. She has written novels, short stories, essays, articles, taught English literature, and lectured at various colleges, universities, and other institutions. Her novel, Out of Eden (1996) won the Western Heritage Award, and her most recent novel is Confessions of a Bigamist (Shaye Areheart Books/Crown, 2004). She and her husband, PBS anchor and writer Jim Lehrer, live in Washington, D.C.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
Featured Folk: Some of the people here can also be seen on other pages on this site.

2004 photos: Equipment this year: I bought two Fujifilm S7000 digital cameras. While they produced excellent images, I found all of the retractable-lens Fuji models had a disturbing tendency to get dust inside the lens. Dark blurs would show up on the images and the camera had to be sent back to the shop in order to get it fixed. I returned one of the cameras when the blurs showed up in the first month. I found myself buying extended warranties on cameras.
Trips this year: (1) Margot and I went off to Scotland for a few days, my first time overseas. (2) I went to Hawaii on business (such a deal!) and extended it, spending a week in Hawaii and another in California. (3) I went to Tennessee to man a booth and extended it to go to my third Fan Fair country music festival.
Number of photos taken this year: 110,000.
