Henry Groskinsky, Class of 1952

1952 Grad's Historic Photos Following the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Finally Published -- 41 Years Later-

MLK killing: The lost photos of a tragic night. Henry Groskinsky, a 1952 graduate of the School of Industrial Art* and a LIFE magazine photographer, was at the Lorraine Motel, where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was staying. One second, King was joking with aides. The next second, he was gone, slain by a sniper's bullet. Groskinsky's photos of the aftermath have never been published -- until now. To view a slideshow from CNN go to: http://www.cnn.com/2009/living/04/21/slideshow.mlk.life/index.html
