Marilyn Newton

Known for her tenacity in chasing down breaking news and her dedication to the job, Newton is believed to be the first woman hired as a full-time newspaper photographer in Nevada. The veteran photographer came to the Reno Evening Gazette in 1963, starting as a girl Friday. Within a week, she wrote her first front-page story and within six months was carrying a camera. She switched to the Nevada State Journal and photojournalism full-time in 1967.
