Welcome to Generation Boomer

Newsmaking Baby Boomers to
be Displayed in New Museum

On Sept. 26, 2014, the Newseum will open its newest exhibit, "The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield- Sanders," featuring 19 largeformat portraits of influential baby boomers — one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964.

Photographer and filmmaker Greenfield-Sanders chose his subjects as boomers who reflect the depth, diversity and talent of their generation.

The 19 men and women selected for "The Boomer List" have had a profound impact on the world, shaking up attitudes about sex, race and politics, and leaving their mark on everything from science and technology to art and music. They are:

  1. 1946: Tim O'Brien, Vietnam veteran/author
  2. 1947: Deepak Chopra, M.D., New Age guru
  3. 1948: Samuel L. Jackson, actor
  4. 1949: Billy Joel, singer/songwriter
  5. 1950: Steve Wozniak, co-founder, Apple Computer
  6. 1951: Tommy Hilfiger, fashion designer
  7. 1952: Amy Tan, author
  8. 1953: Eve Ensler, playwright
  9. 1954: Julieanna Richardson, founder, The HistoryMakers 1
  10. 1955: Maria Shriver, journalist
  11. 1956: Kim Cattrall, actress
  12. 1957: Virginia Rometty, CEO, IBM
  13. 1958: Ellen Ochoa, Director, Johnson Space Center

  17. 1962: Rosie O'Donnell, entertainer
  18. 1963: David LaChapelle, artist
  19. 1964: John Leguizamo, actor

In addition to the 19 portraits, a timeline of historic events that defined the generation will be displayed, featuring newsmagazines from the Newseum collection plus more than 30 iconic boomer objects. They include a copy of Dr. Benjamin Spock's parental advice book, "Baby and Child Care," an original 1959 Barbie doll, a 1964 G.I. Joe action figure, a transistor radio and a U.S. Army draft card from 1965.
