Pulitzer Winner Arnold Hardy Dies

©Arnold Hardy

Photographer Arnold Hardy, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1946 as an amateur, has died. His photograph of a woman falling from a burning hotel was published worldwide and changed fire codes. Although he clearly had an excellent editorial eye, he was so traumatized by that single capture, he gave up his photography career and went on to make X-Ray equipment.
