Legendary White House correspondent Helen Thomas passed away Saturday at age 92. Thomas served in the White House press corps from 1961 until her retirement in 2010. Thomas was considered a tough reporter who kept 10 presidents on their toes during a career that spanned almost 50 years. Always controversial, Thomas retired after video of her making what some considered anti-semitic remarks appeared on the Internet.

Below is a picture of Thomas on her first day on the job.
