Paul Tople has been a photographer for over 40 years at the Akron Beacon Journal in Akron Ohio.

Starting off at Kent State and witnessing the tragedy that occurred that spring day 40 years ago has
helped to shape his view of what journalism is and how it relates to the community.

Paul has been involved in two Pulitzer prizes that the paper has won in his tenure there and is happy
to be able to have one of the greatest and most interesting jobs in the world.
