He Never Forgot: Letter to Fr. Oakey
A moving presentation about a letter Tom Lea sent to chaplain Rufus Oakey, in which he apologizes for an editorial error in Life magazine’s spread of his paintings about the Battle of Peleliu in which Oakey is misidentified as somebody else. Margo will share the personal nature of Tom Lea’s war-reporting, in which he not only learned the roles of his subjects, but also knew them by name.
