#2 Floyd was 42 when I was born. He had already lived through events like the deadly influenza epidemic of 1917. In the 1920s, he went to exotic locales like Haiti and the Mato Grosso jungle in Brazil. He loved the photographic image.
#3 Floyd was able to get a job on a Hollywood film set in 1929, and he spent the next several years traveling around the world, filming everything he could and learning everything he could.
#4 My father, Floyd, was a cameraman and photographer who specialized in documentary and nature photography. He had returned to New York City in the 1930s, but in the 1930s, the economy wasn’t booming. So Floyd took steady work with the United States Government.
