Douglas Southall Freeman in His Study

In this undated photograph, Douglas Southall Freeman sits in his study at his home in Richmond, surrounded by the tools of his trade—stacks of books and papers, a manual typewriter, and a standing microphone used for his radio broadcasts. Freeman, an influential newspaper editor, biographer, military analyst, and radio broadcaster, received the Pulitzer Prize for Biography for his four-volume R. E. Lee (1934–1935).
