Yousuf Karsh (1908-) famous portrait photographer writes to photojournalist Eisenstaedt. Both men did memorable photographs of Winston Churchill, Karsh's being the more famous ("Karsh", Churchill said, "you have immortalized me.") Karsh, who had begun his career in Ottawa in 1932--shortly before Eisenstaedt joined the staff of LIFE--had achieved Churchill's famous bellicose expression by snatching the cigar from his subject's lips an instant before releasing the shutter.
