Photographers cover first Super Bowl

Jan. 15, 1967:  The Chiefs’ Curtis McClinton – surrounded by photographers – catches a touchdown pass during the first Super Bowl game at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Chiefs’ Chris Burford, 88, is on the left.

The 7-yard pass from Len Dawson was Kansas City’s only touchdown in their 35-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The photo above was taken on 70 mm film with a sequence camera by Times staff photographer Larry Sharkey.  An earlier frame of the touchdown was published in the Jan. 16, 1967, Los Angeles Times.

Four Los Angeles Times photographers, Sharkey, Art Rogers, Ben Olender and Charles O’Rear had photos published after the game – check this blog post: Packers win first Super Bowl.
