Thank you so much for researching our request and getting back to me. However, the Caswell County Historical Association is a non-profit organization operating in one of the poorest counties in North Carolina. $500 to them might as well be $1 million.
Although the CCHA is over fifty years old, it did not have a website until this summer when I (from Florida) built one for them.
Is there any way Life Magazine could see fit to waive the fee? We would give full attribution and be very grateful.
We also could place a link to any site that you wish in an effort to generate more business for you.
That link would go at:
Otherwise, we will just quote a short part of the article under the fair-use rule, still of course citing the source and giving full attribution.
Thanks and best personal regards.

PS I have not been successful in finding anyone who claims any copyright in the Walter Sanders photographs.
PPS I now have two copies of the December 8, 1941 issue, with one in mint condition. It was a very collectible issue because of the date and the fact that Douglass MacArthur was on the cover. The issue obviously went to press before the events of December 7, 1941.
