Summary:
Portrait cropped with tape from a larger image in which Randolph is holding an unidentified object with another man. Behind the men the room is ornately decorated, including a large "No Smoking" pedestal sign. No ink on negative, no Scurlock number. Ink on envelope: "2 - 8 x 10's of Randolph". "1 AGFA SAFETY FILM" edge imprint. According to Craig Simpson in an e-mail (19 Nov. 2012), "Man to right of Randolph is John Preston Davis, Executive Secretary of the National Negro Congress from 1935 to 1942. This photograph [was]probably taken in the Spring of 1940 before Randolph quit the NNC. Davis is easily identified by other known photographs of him."
