ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The elder son of Frank Dementi, Brian was eight when his father had the exclusive opportunity to photograph Churchill and Eisenhower in the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg on March 8, 1946. But he grew up repeatedly hearing Frank’s stories of the event. After a career as a biochemist and toxicologist, the last twenty-five years spent at the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., he has devoted much of his retirement to cataloguing and “informing” his father’s photos, with a goal of publishing the pictures, their context, and Frank’s stories. This book represents the first and perhaps the most comprehensive of several publications.
