Addison Scurlock (1883-1964), began working as a photographer in 1904 and established his own photographic studio in Washington, D.C., in 1911. He took pictures all over the city, especially of the Black communities, and became the official photographer for Howard University. His sons, Robert and George, joined his business as young men and kept the business going until the 1990's. The National Museum of American History acquired their extraordinary collection in 1997."
