ST. LOUIS – Fred Waters, a longtime Associated Press photographer who covered everything from the Korean and Vietnam wars to construction of the Gateway Arch, has died, his daughter said Thursday.
Waters died Wednesday in Gulf Breeze, Fla., after several years of failing health, daughter Karen Wiley said. He turned 86 last month.
Waters was born in Alabama in 1927. His family moved to Miami in the 1930s and he got a job as a clerk in the photo lab of the Miami Herald.
