Summary
Collection consists of individual studio and candid portraits of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) executive and author Walter White (ca. 1920s to 1950s), and group portraits of White with other individuals at various gatherings (ca. 1940s). Group portraits consist of White, with other African American officials and Naval officers, at an unidentified meeting; with police brutality victim Isaac Woodard, an African American Army veteran, and his supporters posing before a mural that quotes industrialist-turned-political activist Wendell Willkie (1946); with NAACP president Arthur Spingarn, W.E.B. Du Bois, Philip Willkie, son of Wendell Willkie, and others at the dedication of the Willkie Memorial Building at Freedom House; and with Spingarn, who is receiving a donation to the NAACP from Christian (formerly Colored) Methodist Episcopal Church bishop William Y. Bell and other church leaders. Also included is a photographic reproduction of a painted portrait of White by Betsy Graves; and a view of White lying in state at his funeral service at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, Harlem (1955).
