When John Daniels completed his career at Livingstone College as a three-year varsity men’s tennis player, there was virtually no evidence of his ever having competed at the college.
So for more than 10 years, Daniels has committed his life to making sure athletes are ever forgotten in Blue Bear History, serving as the unofficial LC photojournalist.
Daniels took team pictures and other photographs for school publications, but more important he captured individuals competing. It became his personal tradition on senior award nights to present Livingstone athletes with their own portfolios – framed photos and many other images he caught of them in action over their careers.
“I made a lot of prints,” Daniels says, looking back, “because I want the kids to have hard evidence of what they did in college.”
