Description of Pictures: Celebrate: Gregory Peck
April 1, 2016 – April 10, 2016
1916 was the year that National Park Service was created and the Boy Scouts of America were incorporated. It was also the year that legendary actor Gregory Peck was born. In honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth, the Portrait Gallery honors his life and legacy with his portrait by Everett Raymond Kinstler on our “Celebrate” wall.

Perhaps best known for his Oscar-winning role as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), Gregory Peck rose to Hollywood stardom in the 1940s. From the outset, Peck gravitated towards roles demonstrating virtues of quiet strength, resolve, and tolerance. By the end of his career, he had earned five Academy Award nominations for his performances, including his work in The Keys of the Kingdom (1944), The Yearling (1946), Gentleman’s Agreement (1947), Twelve O’ Clock High (1949), and To Kill a Mockingbird. Outside of Hollywood, Peck advocated for gun control and protested the Vietnam War. His many honors include the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award, the AFI Life Achievement Award, and the National Medal of Arts.

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:
two Civil War Trust conference (Gettysburg, PA and West Point, NY, with a side-trip to New York City),
my 11th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
two additional trips to New York City, 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.
