I need to acquire photos (non-action) for a forthcoming book. The timeline runs roughly from Bob Fitzsimmons thru Sonny Liston and includes all weight divisions. Seeking photos not only of prominent boxers, but of promoters (e.g., Dan A. Stuart, Tex Rickard, Doc Kearns, John Roxborough, Mike Jacobs) and writers (e.g., Nat Fleischer, Damon Runyon). Here's the snag: My publisher needs an assurance that photos are free to re-use without violating any copyright infringement. Any tips on who to contact will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
