GRAPHIC:  About AlumniImages

As a fourth-year history major in the College, Danny Lyon, AB’63, was one of two students in Custer and the Little Big Horn, taught by English professor Norman Maclean, PhD’40. Now Lyon has published photographs of that battlefield and 18 other western Indian reservations, with an introduction by Larry McMurty, in Indian Nations: Pictures of American Indian Reservations in the Western United States (Twin Palms Publishers, 2002).

Lyon has been a documentary photographer since 1963—when he joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to photograph the U.S. civil-rights movement. A filmmaker and writer as well as a photographer, he has received two Guggenheim fellowships and has had one-person exhibits at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. Lyon’s award-winning photographic works include The Bikeriders and Conversations with the Dead.
