Overview

Arthur Rickerby's illustrious career was spent capturing scores of the nation's significant historical events on film, from the Japanese signing of the Articles of Surrender aboard the USS Missouri in 1945, ending World War II, to famous sports images such as Don Larsen throwing the final pitch of baseball's only World Series perfect game for the New York Yankees in 1956.
