Edwin Levick (1868-1929) specialized in spot news and marine photography. His New York City studio, staffed with some eight assistants, supplied illustrations for the rotogravure sections of several leading newspapers. Most of the Societys images date from the decade after Levicks death, when the studio continued to cover local news topics.
