Papa Flash, aka Harold "Doc" Edgerton, was a professor at MIT and is credited with bringing the strobe flash to the masses. In the foreground is the introduction to his book "Flash! Seeing the Unseen by Ultra High-Speed Photography" and beneath it lies "Electronic Flash, Strobe".
This photo is for my most recent student blog post Finding Focus, which is directed at MBA students and applicants but with a slant towards my photographic endeavors. I was searching for the photo and ran into a hall lined with photos from Doc Edgerton, a name that is familiar to the MIT community due to the dorm bearing his name. His legacy in imaging continues at MIT's Edgerton Center.
Ironically, no flash fired while capturing this image :)
