Jonathan FitzGordon was born in 1894 in New York City. He attended the Columbia University and graduated with a degree in mathematics. After graduation he worked at various jobs including working as a clerk for the United States government during World War I. During this time he developed a passion for photography which led him to work as an amateur photographer from 1919 until his death in 1953. His photographs have been exhibited around the world and are considered some of the finest photographic records of World War I ever made.
In 1932, he began teaching photography classes at Columbia University. He taught there until his retirement in 1956. He died while visiting his daughter in her home town of Providence, Rhode Island where she lived with her husband and their three children.
FitzGerald’s photographs were published in several books during his lifetime and are still widely used today as historical documents. They are often cited as examples of “the best” photographs taken during World War II.
His photographs were featured in many films and television shows throughout the years. Some of these include: The Great Escape (1963), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), A Bridge Too Far (1971) and The Deer Hunter (1978).
He was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1976 by President Gerald Ford. This was presented to his daughter Geraldine by the then Secretary of the Smithsonian, Robert McC. Adams.
The most comprehensive collection of his work is held and preserved in the US Library of Congress. Other works by him are held in many other museums, galleries, and private collections around the world.
During World War I, he was drafted into the United States military and assigned to the Air Service where he served as a photographer until July 1919.
