WILLIAM T. “BILL” DIXON (1921-2005) was a fixture in the newspaper photography scene in Oklahoma for 40 years, serving much of that time as chief photographer for the Lawton Constitution and Morning Press. He gave many young photographers the practical training and the encouragement to start careers of their own. His photographs have provided the residents of southwest Oklahoma with an accurate and interesting account of the events occurring around them. After retiring from the paper, he did freelance and commercial photography.
