In Response to: Mississippi Eyes
Thank you for the article about Matt Herron ’53 (cover story, June 4). I hope that Matt will remember me and, apropos of the article, the help that he gave me to nurture my own interest in photography.
During our years at Princeton there was a darkroom in the basement of Holder Hall, where he taught me how to develop black-and-white film and make black-and-white prints. I continued shooting black-and-white film and making black-and-white prints in the 1960s and have never lost interest in the subject. I did not know about his work in the civil-rights movement, for which I admire him greatly. I enjoyed the photos and text of the PAW article.
