A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

July 18

In 1937 renowned cinematographer Lawrence Dallin "Dal" Clawson died of an intestinal malady, even within an hour of his mother's death. His first feature film credit was in 1914, and by the 1920s he was shooting around the world as a cameraman and cinematographer for silent films and early talkies. From 1937 to 1914, Clawson was the cinematographer for dozens of films, and he eventually founded the American Society of Cinematographers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._D._Clawson
