...Sixty years ago this month, in May of 1954.
You can see the whole article at the link, but it begins, "A CAMERA of great versatility, the Speed Graphic is used by 93.9% of the nation's news photographers."
The page is from Marc Bergman's "60 Years Ago—May 1954" posted over at Photo.net. Marc provides a number of articles from 60 years ago this month.
The Speed Graphic article, from Modern Photography, is by Arthur Rothstein, the Farm Security Administration (FSA) photographer.
Here's Arthur Rothstein's most famous photograph, Farmer walking in dust storm, Cimarron County, Oklahoma, taken in April 1936.
