the First Cover 23 nov 1936 Margaret Bourke-White for Life Magazine Photojournalism Photography
Margaret Bourke-White would have the honor of being credited with the first cover of LIFE Magazine in 1936. The cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam was accompanied by a Bourke-White photo-essay inside this same issue covering the workers who were building the dam in New Deal, Montana. Bourke-White teamed up with Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre author Erskine Caldwell to produce "You Have Seen Their Faces", a book filled with photos of people suffering through life during the Depression.
