People of Note
Emily Keller Malec, M.A. 1969 & B.A. 1965
Emily Keller Malec of Niagara Falls, N.Y., has published Margaret Bourke-White, A Photographer's Life (Lerner Publications, Minneapolis), a biography of the renowned photojournalist, for young adults.

Malec, who writes as Emily Keller, describes Bourke-White's transformation from shy child to competitive, globe-trotting photographer for Life magazine. An English teacher who has published poetry and nonfiction articles, Malec long wished to write a biography of the kind of woman she admired as a childčone who was independent, adventurous and successful.

The author searched through thousands of Bourke-White photos housed at Syracuse University to find the 63 images reproduced in the book, available at the Museums of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, and at selected bookstores in Western New York.
