The diminutive giant (circa 1955; actual size approx. 8.1 x 10.4 in. (20.5 x 26.3cm.)). "Son, when I was your age, the only computers we knew of were as big as a house, filled with vacuum tubes, and had names like 'UNIVAC.' We didn't have Photoshop, InDesign, or GIMP. We used X-Acto knives and rubber cement, and WE LIKED IT!" Here the term "diminutive giant," with which the Los Angeles Press Photographers Association eulogized my father some five years hence, takes on a quite different meaning. Scanned from a xerograph provided by Delmar Watson. The extensive mottling at the top appears to have been caused by condensation when the original photo was produced. No touch-up was attempted, except for a small white spot at upper right. Desaturated to remove color artifacts introduced through xerography.
