Capturing the world through photography, video and multimedia

Action on the sidelines

Action on the sidelines

Oct. 20, 1962: Los Angeles Times staff photographer Judd Gunderson, indicated by arrow, backs off as USC Trojan defenders make a sideline tackle of a California Bears player.

Gunderson was using a 35mm camera. The unidentified photographer, center, is using a 4 by 5 camera — most likely a speed graphic. This image might have been taken by Times staffer Larry Sharkey, who was shooting from an overhead position at the Coliseum. The photo ran in the November 1962 edition of Among Ourselves, a Times-Mirror employee publication.

USC won 32-6.
