Incomplete article[edit]

The article appears to be incomplete; if he is well known for fleeing Germany with an important photo archive, the article should reflect that. Expert on the subject needed. I verified that info and his death date with the LC authority file. --FeanorStar7 08:38, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Hardly the inventor of the image resource business[edit]

Bettmann hardly "invented the image resource business." Other agencies, including Bain News Service, existed by the time of his birth. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.134.100.188 (talk) 00:37, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Date of Death[edit]

According to both his obituary in the May 4, 1998, issue of "The New York Times" and his entry in the Social Security Death Index, Bettmann died on May 1, 1998. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.134.100.188 (talk) 00:52, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
