For the Golden Gate’s 75th, a nod to photographer Ted Huggins

Friday, May 25, 2012

Hand it to San Ramon-based Chevron for seizing a great PR moment with its webpage and video mini-doc devoted to the late Golden Gate Bridge photographer Ted Huggins. Chevron was Standard Oil Company of California in 1933 when it loaned Huggins, a top public relations executive, to the bridge district to chronicle the Golden Gate’s construction. The result was a photographic and historical triumph. Talking heads in the video include Huggins’ daughter, Carol Huggins Trabert, and California historian and state librarian emeritus Kevin Starr. There are also stills of the Huggins photos at the PBS NewsHour website.
