Happy birthday to Yofi Capa

One of my greatest joys processing the Cornell Capa papers, is coming across a picture of Cornell’s dog, Yofi. Yofi was beloved by Capa and Edie and is very often mentioned in their correspondence, friends and colleagues both asking after and wishing the pup well.

In a card from photographer Yvonne Kalmus, addressed March 29th, 1969 he writes: “Sabra’s First Day In U.S. Yofi – 3/29-69 “Cornell_Capa_Papers-Yofi-003

This note also was enclosed with two photographs by Yvonne of a very young Yofi puppy.


Perhaps not his exact birthday, but we celebrate 48 years of you today, Yofi!
