Photos – Old Military Photos of Paul Newman and Johnny Carson

Posted: April 13, 2010 in ACTORS, PHOTOS
APRIL 13–Along with historical treasures like the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation, and those 972 tapes of Richard Nixon screaming about the Jews, the National Archives is home to assorted military records, including the personnel files of famous enlisted men (like Jimi Hendrix, Jack Kerouac, and Marvin Gaye). And, as recently unearthed by a TSG Freedom of Information request, some great military portraits of Paul Newman and Johnny Carson. Newman’s Navy service began in January 1943, while Carson, who died in January 2005 at age 79, joined the Navy Reserve in June 1943. Keep in mind that while those images of a fresh-faced Newman, who died in September 2008 at age 83, look like mug shots, they are actually official service photos. (6 pages)
