Approved biography for Earl H. Evers
(Courtesy of Christian Peterson)
Born in Minneapolis on June 25, 1912, Earl H. Evers remained in the Twin Cities for most of his life. He was a commercial photographer and, from 1936 to 1942, a wire photo operator for the Associated Press. During World War II, he served in the military and received training in electronics. After returning home, he taught at the Dunwoody Industrial Institute for over thirty years. He retired in 1977, but consulted in electronics for a while.
During the 1930s, Evers was a member of the Twin Cities Miniature Camera Club, and he exhibited in the Minneapolis Salon of Photography in 1938. The Minneapolis Institute of Artsís only print by him, Sunday Walk, shows a man striding through strong architectural shadows, giving it a modernist edge. The building is identifiable as the Gateway Pavilion, a downtown Minneapolis structure near the intersection of Hennepin and Nicollet Avenues that was razed in the 1960s. This photograph received an award from the Twin Cities Miniature Camera Club, according to a label on the back of its mount. On March 11, 1999, Earl H. Evers died of natural causes in Crystal, a Minneapolis suburb.
