The Spring 2014 issue begins with a cover feature on Blair Kooistra, a railroad photographer who is currently a BNSF Railway dispatcher and previously worked for twenty years in newspaper photojournalism. His work focuses on the American West from the 1970s to the present. Kevin P. Keefe, Center board member and vice president of publishing at Kalmbach Publishing Company, introduces the railroad art of George Gloff, who many know as a former art director of Trains magazine but who was also a talented painter of railroads. There is also an overview of railroad imagery in musical theater by Aviva Gellman, intern for the Center and a junior majoring in political science and theater at the University of Minnesota. You will also find information about the 2014 Conversations about Photography conference, the opening and the catalog for Railroaders: Jack Delano’s Homefront Photography exhibition at the Chicago History Museum, and the list of our 2013 donors.
