PBS Memorial Day Interview w Howard Brodie May 1996


13 years ago on Memorial Day Howard Brodie was interviewed  on the PBS News Hour by Betty Ann Bowser. Howard Brodie was the dean of courtroom art, beginning his career as a court artist for CBS covering the Jack Ruby Trial              ( which will be included in the Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art).   He was also a revered combat artist and drew on the front lines in many battles and speaks about those experiences in the interview.
Howard was a remarkable artist and person. We are honored that he agreed to be part of the upcoming book.
Below is the transcript of the interview from 1996
