Arnold Hardy (February 2, 1922 – December 5, 2007) was an American amateur photographer who won the 1947 Pulitzer Prize for Photography.
His 1947 award-winning photo of a woman plunging from a window of the burning Winecoff Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, USA on December 7, 1946, became the defining image of the fire that killed 119 people. At the time, Hardy was 24 years old and a graduate student at Georgia Tech.
Hardy later declined a job with the Associated Press, and instead began an x-ray equipment business. He died in 2007 at age 85 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta of complications following hip surgery.
