Default Great Uncle was a famous photog in Miami FL

I had heard the stories about my great Uncle Carl and all the celebrities he photographed including General Patton during WWII. He took this photo in this thread and his wife took the photo of my Grandpa in this thread . I told my Dad yesterday that the photo looked as if someone with knowledge of photographic technique had taken the photo. My Aunt Natalie, my paternal grandmother's sister, did much of the behind the scenes work for Uncle Carl.

I found these links today after doing a search to see if anything came up on him. The info at the end is from the last link. I have send the one-three people a message to see if any of his work can be viewed online.

This from the last link.

Swedish-born Carl Walden began as a photographer to the stars at Harper's Bazaar and later became the official photographer of the McFadden Deauville Hotel (demolished in 1958). Many of Walden’s photos depict entertainers from the 40s through the 70s who performed in Miami, including Billy Graham, Walter Winchell, Gipsy Rose Lee and Charles Atlas. In 2007 Hugo Moro, Venessa Monokian, Natasha Duwin and Jules Lusson - the One-Three Art Collective - undertook The Walden Project, organizing the vast archives from The Carl Walden Studios, bequeathed to Lusson in 2003 upon the death of the artist’s wife, Mrs. Natalie Walden. Photographer Peggy Levison Nolan joined in to select large-format negatives from the archives, mostly to generate prints highlighting Walden’s talent and the culture of mid-century Miami. This exhibition re-introduces the works of Carl Walden and pays homage to his legacy.

Pat I couldn't begin to fathom what might be in 30+ years of photographs. I know my Dad and Uncle went and helped their aunt on several occasions in her later years and brought back very small amounts of memorabilia. I am going to be contacting cousins from that uncle to see what they may have ended up with when he passed away.

I have found contact info for Ms. Lusson and will mail a registered letter to her. My Dad told me the other day that Uncle Carl became good friends with President Herbert Hoover. Uncle Carl told Dad they "became good drinking buddies". He also photographed Bing Crosby and Maureen O'Hare. I'd love to see those.

My aunt met him in Chicago in the late 1930s when she was a hat model. My grandmother would travel to Miami to visit her sister or her sister, sometimes with Carl would come to Texas. My grandmother and her sister couldn't have lived much different lives from each other but they were sisters and loved each other very much. It was easy to see.

My Dad told me that Uncle Carl's brother photographer Patton relieving himself in the Rhine River. I always thought that photo was one of Uncle Carl's. I like to see that one too.

That is cool, Bill. That fishing pic is neat. I love going through old family photos. When my grandmother passed away several years ago, I went through box after box photos. I had a blast, I love seeing the old houses, cars and motorcycles. My coolest find was a pair of brand new 1938(?) Texas license plates, still in the box.

I'm not sure if you check for messages. I knew Natalie and Carl, from summers spend in Ashe county. I have a story about them, and a photo of him in the 50s before a fox hunt.
