National Geographic photographer to speak at Baker

February 29, 2012


A National Geographic magazine photographer who took a cover photo of a King James Bible housed at Baker University will speak next week at the university.

Jim Richardson, a photojournalist based in Lindsborg, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at McKibbin Recital Hall at the Owens Musical Arts Building, 408 Eighth St., in Baldwin City.

The King James Bible used in the photo is part of the university’s William A. Quayle Rare Bible Collection and was used as part of the magazine’s commemoration of the book’s 400th anniversary.

Richardson also traveled to England, Jamaica and Wyoming for the story. His photos will be on display Tuesday through May 20 at the Quayle Bible Collection, which is housed in the south wing of Collins Library, 518 Eighth St.
