Newly digitized photographs from the Ron Kovic papers are now available through Hoover’s digital collections portal.  The photographs were taken by photographer Roger Steffens, a close friend of Kovic, and capture the period when Kovic was writing the manuscript for his Vietnam War memoir, Born on the Fourth of July.  These images offer a personal glimpse into the life and creative process of a prominent figure in the anti-Vietnam War movement.
