Lord David George Brownlow Cecil Burghley, a renowned British athlete, is seen here on a golf course and is all smiles. He wears a classic three-piece suit with a most gentlemanly cane and top hat. Burghley competed in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris (110m hurdles), the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam (400m hurdles gold medalist and 110m hurdles semifinal), and the 1932 Summer Games in Los Angeles (4x400m relay team silver medalist and 400m hurdles fifth place). He served on the International Olympic Committee for 48 years starting in 1933 and was chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. The photograph, by Toni Frissell, appeared in the August 1, 1953, Vogue.

- The Artist
A pioneering and inventive photographer, Toni Frissell (1907 – 1988) effectively utilized a still camera to capture an abundance of action. Working for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Frissell took photography out of the studio, shooting unprecedented fashion photos of active women outdoors. She was the first female photographer for Sports Illustrated, and was one of the only women taking sports photos for several decades. Frissell also took battlefront photos during World War II, utilizing her emotive images to encourage support for women and African-Americans in the military. Preferring small cameras that provided spontaneous-looking photographs, Frissell produced an astounding 340,000 images in her lifetime.
