The Center for Photography at the University of California Graduate School of Journalism has announced a campaign to establish the Jim Marshall Fellowships in Photography. The goal is to raise between $500,000 and $1 million in funds dedicated solely to supporting financial aid for the visual arts at the school.

Jim Marshall (1936-2010) ranks among the most renowned and prolific photographers of 20th century popular music. He has been the only photographer to be honored with a Recording Academy Trustees Award, a Grammy given to non-musicians, for his photographic record of music history from the 1950s through the early 2000s.

In addition, his fellow photographers honored him with a Lucie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music Photography in 2004.

Through his documentary photojournalism, Marshall also captured street life in San Francisco and New York, the despair of a Kentucky coal mining town, Mississippi civil rights demonstrations and Johnny Cash's live concerts at Folsom and San Quentin prisons.

Founded in 1996, the Center offers courses in hands-on photojournalism and social documentary photography. The Center exhibits world-class photographers in the halls of the Journalism School and its public events have brought distinguished photojournalists to Berkeley.

Donations may be made by check payable to the UC Berkeley Foundation or directly online.
