On June 9th, the world lost one of the most important photographers of our time and our community. Although his images of displaced people arriving in New York City post-World War II are his most recognized work, generations of Miss Hall’s students remember Clemens Kalischer as the kind, thoughtful man who captured their yearbook photos. In doing so, Mr. Kalischer would spend an afternoon with each senior, first having them fill out a questionnaire to learn more about them. He would then try to select a location for the portrait that matched their interests. He also photographed many special events at the School.
In honor of his remarkable life and many contributions, and to ensure the memory of this great man lives on at MHS, we would like to establish the Clemens Kalischer Photography Award.
The entire Miss Hall's community is invited to contribute to our $25,000 goal to recognize Clemens Kalischer. Thank you in advance for your help in making this possible.
