Biographical/Historical note

Robert Hopkins (May 17, 1921 - December 29, 2006), son of Ethel Gross and Harry Lloyd Hopkins, is best known for his work as an U.S. Army Signal Corps photographer during World War II and as the president of the Harry Hopkins Public Service Institute. As an Army photographer, Hopkins was present at and recorded the four great conferences at Casablanca, Cairo, Teheran, and Yalta, producing the most widely known images of these events including the first meetings of the "Big Three." After the war, Hopkins began a long career with the CIA during the Cold War, serving in Europe, South America, and Washington, DC, eventually retiring from Federal service in 1980. He is the author of two books: "Sean's Legacy: An Aids Awakening," the story of his son's life and death from AIDS related complications; "Witness to History: Recollections of a WWII Photographer," Hopkins' memoirs of his role as a combat photographer and documenter of the WWII conferences.
