Los Alamos Library Displaying Ed Wergeles’ 1959 Newsweek Covers

The Los Alamos Branch Library is showing 1959 Newsweek covers, photographed by the award-winning Ed Wergeles.

The legendary Wergeles was chief photographer, cover director, and senior editor of Newsweek in the 1950s. His bold and innovative covers broke new ground in news magazines of the day, and led him to a distinguished career photographing world leaders and major world events.

The public is invited to join Los Alamos Friends of the Library for an opening reception at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 8, at the library, 405 Helena St. Alexander Nazaryan, a senior writer for Newsweek, will lead a discussion about the past and present role of the news magazine.

Los Alamos Branch Library hours are 2-7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 2-6 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. The branch library is operated by the city of Santa Maria Public Library.

Questions may be directed to the Los Alamos Branch Library, 344-1025, or to the Santa Maria Public Library, 925-0994.

— Mark van de Kamp for city of Santa Maria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
