News Summary: National Geographic to auction art


FIRST-EVER AUCTION: The National Geographic Society plans to sell a small selection from its massive archive in an auction expected to raise about $3 million.

INDELIBLE IMAGES: Some of the 240 items up for sale at Christie's include the iconic photograph of an Afghan girl during the Soviet invasion and a 40-volume photo portfolio and book, "The North American Indian."

WORTHY CAUSE: Proceeds from the Dec. 6 auction, just weeks before National Geographic's 125th anniversary, will go for the promotion and preservation of the archive and the nurturing of young photographers, artists and explorers.
