Part of a rare and significant archive of original photographs taken by Associated Press photographer, Walt Zeboski, from the 1960s to the 1990s. Zeboski was based in Northern California, first in the San Francisco Bay Area, then in Sacramento. These photos are loosely grouped together as "Politics" and include many hundreds of photographs of the once and future Governor of California, Edmund G. ("Jerry") Brown Jr., plus countless other politicians.
Walt Zeboski (1929 - 12 November 2012), was an American photographer and photojournalist for the Associated Press for more than thirty years. Zeboski extensively photographed Ronald Reagan during his 1980 presidential campaign, snapping some of the most iconic pictures of Reagan's campaign. Zeboski, who often focused on California politics, covered the political terms of four consecutive Governors of California from the 1960s to the 1980s - Pat Brown, Ronald Reagan, Jerry Brown and George Deukmejian.
Zeboski joined the Associated Press in 1966. In addition to Reagan and the Californian governors, some of his more famous subjects included Cesar Chavez, the Black Panthers, and Senator George McGovern. He also photographed Queen Elizabeth II's 1983 to Yosemite National Park.
Walt Zeboski died on November 12, 2012, at the age of 83. He was a resident of Sacramento, California. Item #18-9484
