St. Fitz

Rolla’s Bob Fitzsimmons, who has photographed St. Pat’s festivities for almost 50 years, has been named Honorary St. Pat in anticipation of the 100th celebration.

From 1961 through 2005, Fitzsimmons saved his vacation days to spend them with the court every March. Although he’s known as the “official” photographer, there was never any kind of formal agreement between Fitz and the court. “They just kept coming around every year and saying, ‘Well, you’re doing it again this year, aren’t you?’ and I said, ‘Yeah. Why not?’ They always treated me like a king.”
