Wikipedia Description: Newseum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Newseum is an interactive museum of news and journalism under construction in Washington, D.C. It opened at its first location in Rosslyn, Virginia, on April 18, 1997. Its stated mission is "to help the public and the news media understand one another better." In five years, the Newseum attracted more than 2.25 million visitors. The Newseum's operations are funded by the Freedom Forum, a nonpartisan foundation dedicated to "free press, free speech and free spirit for all people."
In 2000, Freedom Forum decided to move the Newseum across the Potomac River to Washington, D.C. The original Newseum was closed on March 3, 2002, in order to allow its staff to concentrate on building the new, larger museum. The new museum, built at a cost of $450 million, will open its doors to the public on April 11, 2008.
After obtaining a landmark location at Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street NW, the Newseum board selected noted exhibit designer Ralph Appelbaum, who had designed the original Newseum in Arlington, Virginia, and architect James Stewart Polshek, who designed the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, to work on the new project.
This design team had the following goals:
* To design a building that would be an architectural icon, easily recognized and remembered by visitors from around the world;
* To create a museum space three times as large as the original, with the capacity for more than two million visitors a year; and
* To celebrate the First Amendment to the United States Constitution — in particular, its freedom of the press and free speech protections.
Highlights of the building design unveiled October 2002 include a façade featuring a "window on the world", 57 ft × 78 ft (17 m × 24 m), which looks out on Pennsylvania Avenue and the National Mall while letting the public see inside to the visitors and displays. It also features t ...More...

NEWS_161115_07.JPG: In Memoriam
Gwen Ifill, author, moderator and managing editor of PBS’s “Washington Week,” and one of the most prominent journalists in the country, died Nov. 14, 2016, in Washington. She was 61.
President Barack Obama said, "She was an extraordinary journalist. She always kept faith with the fundamental responsibilities of her profession, asking tough questions, holding people in power accountable and defending a strong and free press that makes our democracy work."
In 2013, Ifill and Judy Woodruff made history as the first female co-anchor team of a network news broadcast on "PBS NewsHouse." Ifill covered seven presidential campaigns and moderated the vice presidential debates in 2004 and 2008. She began her journalism career at the Boston Herald American and also worked for The Washington Post, The New York Times and NBC News.
In 2013, Ifill received the Al Neuharth Award for Excellence in Journalism in recognition of her lifetime of work promoting quality journalism and the First Amendment.
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.
2016 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Seven relatively short trips this year:
a Civil War Trust conference in Gettysburg, PA,
a trip out west for San Diego Comic-Con (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
a trip to West Point, NY for another Civil War Trust conference (visiting Manhattan on the way),
two two-day return trips to Manhattan, NY, and
a Civil Rights site trip to Alabama during the November elections. Being in places where people died to preserve the rights of minority voters made the Trumputin election even more depressing.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 610,000.
