Bill McCloskey spent 27 years as a congressional liaison for the Applied Physics Laboratory before retiring in 1989. He also spent 50 years as a seafaring shutterbug, documenting the lives of commercial fishermen. In 2011, his photographs, including this one of Alaskan fishermen hauling in a catch of king crabs, were officially added to the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History collection.
