James Atherton; newsman captured compelling images
James K.W. Atherton, a Washington news photographer whose unusual camera angles captured revealing images of such events as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream’’ speech and the Watergate hearings, died Nov. 29 at his home in Annapolis. He was 83. Atherton retired in 1990 after a 40-year career, including two decades each with what became the United Press International wire service and then The Washington Post.
