PARIS (AP) — John Morris, a celebrated American photo editor who helped bring to the word's eyes some of the most iconic photographs of World War II and the Vietnam War, has died at 100.

His longtime friend, Robert Pledge, president and editorial director of the Contact Press Images photo agency, told The Associated Press that Morris died Friday at a hospital in Paris, the city where he had been living for decades.

Morris edited the historic pictures of the D-Day invasion in Normandy taken by famous photographer Robert Capa in 1944 for Life magazine. In addition, as picture editor for The New York Times, he helped grant front-page display to two of the most striking pictures of Vietnam War by Associated Press photographers Nick Ut Cong Huynh and Eddie Adams.
