Lorant became a guiding force on an international scale, disseminating his ideas and political knowledge throughout Europe in the late-twenties and thirties by working in Hungary, Germany, and England. His vision of photography as a documentary medium inspired Life and Look magazines and paved the way for the eventual emergence of the television documentary. For this he has become recognized as the godfather of photojournalism.

Photographs and reproductions of letters, addresses, and other documents portray Lincoln in his frontier youth, early manhood, and life as statesman and president
