A new photo exhibit explores the parallels between Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali. “Ali and Elvis: American Icons” is running through May 15th at the James A. Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. The photos of Presley are unique in that many were taken just as he was becoming a star. One shows him standing by himself in front of a New York hotel. Another shows him playing in a swimming pool, and another shows him reading fan mail. The photos of Ali show his rise from teen boxer to his lighting the Olympic torch in Atlanta.
