DARKROOM SERIES: Indiana Jones (1913-1938)
For years, fans and researchers alike have been more fascinated by the unofficial "Indy" moniker than by the letters after Henry Walton Jones' name. As both a professor of archeology and an excavator with a not quite traditional approach, Doctor "Indiana" Jones was an immensely valueable figure in his field. These photographs, taken in the safety of his classroom as well as in the tumultuous locations he uncovered, show the man as he existed in both worlds, with or without the hat.
