Brooklyn-born Joanna Taub Steichen (1933-2010), after graduating from Smith College, worked as a copywriter in New York where she was introduced to “world-renowned photographer Edward Steichen by his brother-in-law, poet Carl Sandburg. She married Steichen at the age of twenty-seven [in 1959]; he was eighty. After his death in 1973 she became the guardian and gatekeeper of Steichen’s legacy and his work.” Her publications include an important survey of his work. Ref: NY Times, 7.8.2010.
