Carol W. Martin
Carol W. Martin (1911-1993) was a reporter-turn-staff photographer for the daily newspaper in Roanoke, Virginia in the 1930s. In 1938 he came the first full-time staff photographer for the Greensboro Daily News where he worked until 1947. He opened Martin's Studio in 1946, working through the early 1990s photographing a wide range of Greensboro citizens. While he was the majority owner of the business, he shared the work with his partner Malcolm "Tex" Miller and sometimes their lab technician, Miller’s brother-in-law, Clarence Tucker. Martin was known as "C.W." He died in July 1993.
