Ross Lockridge Jr.

RLJ at the Old Home Place, in Henry County, Indiana, in the summer of 1946. RLJ returned to his ancestral home at the request of "Life" magazine, which was considering a feature article. Instead, an excerpt from "Raintree County" appeared in "Life" on September 8, 1947. This photograph and others from the shoot were never published. | Photo by , by Jeff Wylie, Time-Life, courtesy of Larry Lockridge
