Memories of Fred Comegys
Fred Comegys is a native Delawarean and graduated from Conrad High School in 1959 Now 72, Fred began his lifelong career as a photographer at The News Journal as a copy boy. Comegys quickly gravitated toward the photography lab, where he served as an assistant. His first opportunity to get behind the camera occurred when the paper needed a photographer to take a simple mug shot. He has been called a state treasure, and at least one fan described him as Delaware’s Picasso. News Journal readers would agree that Comegys has consistently and artfully reflected life in the First State for nearly 50 years, and a shot by him is as recognizable to us as the Rockford Tower or Joe Biden. Fred’s photographs have also appeared in Life, Time, Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, and Forbes. In 1985, he was named National Newspaper Photographer of the Year by The National Press Photographers Association. That same year, he was one of five finalists for a Pulitzer. The Delaware Art Museum is celebrating Comegys’ career with a retrospective exhibition in 2011.
