Frank Anderson, who photographed iconic Kentucky moments for 42 years, dies at 73
Longtime Herald-Leader photographer Frank Anderson, 73, died Thursday at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
Anderson was a member of the Lafayette High School camera club when he joined the newspaper staff in 1960, working in the darkroom.
He spent 42 years at the Herald-Leader, photographing the likes of John and Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. He regularly captured the horses crossing the finish line at the Kentucky Derby and documented iconic moments in the history of University of Kentucky basketball, including Adolph Rupp’s last game at Memorial Coliseum.
In 2003, Anderson won an Eclipse Award from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association for his photo of a runaway horse bearing down on jockey Patty Cooksey, who lay injured on the track at Keeneland as track personnel tried to help her.
