Carl Caruso, Photojournalist Who Spearheaded Color Photography, Dies at 92 –Chicago Tribune

“Carl was a selfless pro who made the photographers look good,” said Tribune photographer Chris Walker. “When I came to the Tribune in 1983, Carl was one of the guys — and it was all guys — who worked in the darkroom. But he was also one of the guys who embraced the new technology in color processing and digital transmission of photos. I remember Carl loading crates of equipment and shepherding it all to the airport for some away game we were shooting. We still shot film, but then scanned it before sending the data over phone lines. The equipment was large, heavy and complicated, but Carl mastered it.”
