The New Yorker is being asked to put a photo in its archives of its early photographs.
Its publisher, John Crowley, has asked that the photograph be published in the magazine’s online edition.
The request was made after the publisher received requests from more than one member of Congress for the photograph to be included in the archives, The New York Times reported.
The photographs were taken in 1947, the year of the United States entering World War II.
Crowley told the Times that the photos should be made available in the archive because the images depict a place that was not as far-flung as the United Kingdom, where the world was at war.
The photograph of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the White House in the late 1940s, for example, was taken at the National Archives in Washington, DC, and was released in 2010.
Crowley did not comment on whether the photograph was considered a photograph of a person.
“This is a historic photograph, and this is a photograph that was taken in a time that was a very different place, a very uncertain place, than it is now,” Crowley told The Times.
“So I think we need to put this in the history books.”
