A book of these photographs, Born Free and Equal, was published in 1944. " Some parents whose sons had died in battle wrote Ansel furious letters, and copies of the book were publicly burned. Although pained by such reactions, Ansel remained proud of his book. The camps, however, were not closed until the war ended in 1945. When soldiers returned from the war, many families built new houses, bought new cars, and went on vacations. More forests than ever were being cut down for lumber and more rivers dammed for electricity.

Virginia, who usually went along, stayed in Yosemite at her father's studio because she was expecting their first child. Concerned about his wife, Ansel hiked home a day early. There, in a Yosemite Valley hospital, the happy father met his new son, Michael. When the Ansel Adams Gallery opened a month later, hundreds came to see the exhibits. Crowds also visited later shows of paintings, sculptures, and Ansel's own photographs. But Ansel needed to sell the art to earn money, and few visitors could afford to buy during the depression.
