    Philip Jones Griffiths - Past Magnum President Dies

    Philip Jones Griffiths, who's book "Vietnam, Inc" is one of the
    classic works on the war died of lung cancer on March 19th. Griffiths served
    as president of Magnum for five years, longer than any other president. In addition
    to covering Vietnam, he covered wars in Algeria, Israel, Northern Ireland, Cambodia,
    Iraq and Bosnia

    Magnum's presentation of his work
    .

    His book (22 years in the making), Agent Orange:
    "Collateral Damage" in Viet Nam
    , can only be compared to Eugene Smith's
    Minamata.
