Charles Eugene Gail, DDS (October 21, 1921-May 3, 2003) was born in Chetopa, Kansas and raised in San Bernardino, California. He was an avid photographer all of his life. He graduated from the University of Southern California in 1945 and practiced dentistry for over 50 years in Montrose, California. During the Korean War, he was stationed at an Army Hospital in Okinawa between December 1951 and November 1953. During this period, he took unique pictures of the post-war island and its people. In later years, he focused his photographic works on Sierras and White Mountains in California.
