Abstract
This article addresses the early role of photography in Gannett newspapers and the construction of the position of photographers from 1937 to 1947. Photographs were seen as a competitive strategy, a documentary tool, and a technological advancement while photographers were generally seen by Gannett management as expendable labor.
