Up for sale is this pair of b/w Photographs showing Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Award Ceremony in Coraopolis, PA with information sheet, photographs show young women and a young man receiving awards, we think all the photographs shown were taken by Harry Frye who was a Photographer in Latrobe, PA for local newspapers, we found the following information about Harry Frye online:
Photographer Harry Frye was born four years before Arnold Palmer, in 1925. As the sports snapper for the Latrobe Bulletin, the local paper in Palmer’s Pennsylvania hometown, Harry shot the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates through some great years, and he also captured the young golf phenom on his way up.Unlike many small-town papers, the Bulletin had access to an airplane, and that meant Harry could travel to the Masters and to other events to document the local hero’s rise right alongside photogs from Sports Illustrated, the Associated Press and others. With a local’s eye, Harry captured Palmer in ways others might have missed
Instead of attending college, however, Mr. Frye enlisted in the Army, serving in Gen. Patton’s Third Army Division in Europe during World War II.Throughout his career, Mr. Frye chronicled the Steelers’ rise into an NFL dynasty from the 1960s through the 1980s, photographed three U.S. presidents and made friends with legendary Latrobe golfer Arnold Palmer.After retirement, Mr. Frye dug into his collection of cameras, photos and glass-plate images.
Harry was a graduate of the Latrobe High School and earned a gymnastics scholarship to Rice University but instead enlisted in the US Army and served in General Patton’s third army division in Europe during WW II. It was during his service time that Harry discovered his passion for the art of photography. Harry devoted the rest of his life to family and photography, owning a family photo studio and finishing shop before serving 15 years as a staff photographer for the Latrobe Bulletin and another 25 years’ service at the Beaver County Times. Upon retirement, Harry dedicated the rest of his life to capturing images, collecting and restoring antique cameras and images, and volunteering his time and collections at several local historical societies and museums.Through Harry’s photo journalism career, he was fortunate enough to have photographed past US Presidents (Truman, Nixon, JFK) and captured many early images of an up and coming young golfer in Arnold Palmer. Additionally, Harry covered the Pittsburgh Steelers rise to a dynasty from the 60’s to the 80’s. Harry’s work has been published by the likes of the National Football League, the Golf Channel and Arnold Palmer’s Kingdom Magazine.
