Maynard Owen Williams
Maynard Owen Williams (September 12, 1888-June 1963) was a National Geographic correspondent from 1919. He was an inveterate traveller who began travelling in his teens, explored Asia and witnessed the Russian Revolution, among other adventures.
In his own words a "camera-coolie and a roughneck", Williams was the Geographic's first foreign correspondent, and his reports include a description of the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1923. Maynard Williams was also an excellent photographer, and pioneered travel photography. The Maynard Owen Williams Prize for creative nonfiction at Kalamazoo College is named in his memory.
