Emil Willimetz, the son of Austrian immigrants, was without direction after his graduation from high school in 1936. He took to the rails and roads of the United States, hitchhiking his way until he came to Black Mountain College in Black Mountain, North Carolina. After a fortuitous encounter with some Black Mountain College faculty, Willimetz found a home at the college that set him on a path towards a career in print, photo, and film.
