Sorry, Anon. I’m not really finding much about him (or her). I’ve tried searching the LIFE archives, Wikipedia, and Google. Were they ever a photographer for LIFE?

Anonymous asked: i am looking to find a photo from LIFE (I believe) of a red headed girl and a crew-cut boy in some church in Wisconsin. Would love some help!

Is this what you were looking for?

I’m afraid I don’t have it in color, but perhaps I could scan a better photo of it if it’s the right one?
