As Secretary of the Interior, Harold L. Ickes arranged for Anderson to give her historic 1939 Easter concert at the Lincoln Memorial. When Ickes died, she gave a concert in recognition of their friendship, at his memorial service at the Lincoln Memorial on April 20, 1952. See Eve Edstrom, "Marian Anderson Singing Thrills 10,000 at Ickes Rites," Washington Post, April 21, 1952, pp. B1+.
These images apparently are related to Anderson's concert during a memorial service for Harold L. Ickes. Negative box C. A contact print, with one other image, is stored in box 81. Also number for color version.
