Rogovin Is Focus of Events Celebrating His Life and Career

The date was October 3, 1957, and Milton Rogovin, a Buffalo optometrist, World War II veteran, and social-justice advocate, was being grilled by the House Un-American Activities Committee. For Rogovin, the celebrated social documentary photographer who turns 100 on December 30, this period of his life was one of the most difficult. He was honored last weekend with events in the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
