Pioneering Los Angeles woman photojournalist Helen Brush Jenkins dies at 94

Helen Brush Jenkins, a pioneering photojournalist who made Life magazine when she snapped a photo of her child moments after giving birth, has died. She was 94.

Her daughter, Genji Leclair, tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/12AOu1z ) that Jenkins died Wednesday at her home in Chicago, days after suffering a stroke.

Jenkins became a photographer for the now-defunct Daily News in Los Angeles in the 1940s at a time when few women held such jobs.

Over more than a dozen years, she snapped first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, President Harry Truman and stars such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and John Wayne.

In 1953, Life magazine printed a photo she took of her newborn baby just after giving birth.
