About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Owner Marshall

George did a great job of keeping the Redskins segregated. In 1962 they became the last NFL team to integrate, after having been warned by Sec. of Interior Udall to hire black players or face retribution.

Lucky George

George Marshall made it big in the laundry business, then bought the Redskins - but perhaps his greatest accomplishment was being the long time (off&on) lover of silent film icon Louise Brooks - probably one of the most beautiful, talented, and interesting women of the 20th century.

Slim Pickins

Pick any three of those guys and you would have one modern NFL lineman

They looked different then

So did soldiers and other such icons of manliness. More human and less machine.
