Welcome!

My son Brian Wachter and I are building a historical resource here at douglaswachter.com.

This site will be my online presentation of the best of about three thousand photos made by me in the '60s in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Jim Crow South,  the San Joaquin Valley and at the 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles.

All of the photographs and captions on this site are authored by me and fully copyright-protected.  The narrative text is not, because I freely used online sources which I have mostly not credited or verified their accuracy.
