Selected Images from the Collections of the Library of Congress

These images were selected from the U.S. News & World Report Magazine Photograph Collection to meet requests regularly received by the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. (For more information about the collection, view the collection overview.) This list represents a modified form of a printed "illustrated list" made available for many years by the Division.

The images are presented for educational and research purposes. The Library of Congress is unaware of any restrictions on the use of the images (see the collection rights information). However, patrons who plan to publish or otherwise distribute any of the images should be aware that determination regarding the appropriate use of an image ultimately rests with the patron. The Library generally does not own rights to material in its collections. Therefore, it does not charge permission fees for use of such material and cannot give or deny permission for use of the images.
