June 14

June 14 is the birthdate of photographer Margaret Bourke-White. After graduating from Cornell University in 1927, she went on to become the first foreign photographer allowed to take pictures of Soviet industry, the first female war correspondent, the first female permitted to work in combat zones, and the first female photographer for LIFE magazine (her photograph of Fort Peck Dam appeared on LIFE’s first cover in 1936). Pictured: her celebrated photograph of “Louisville Flood Victims 1937.”
