Scope and Contents:
Group of five men. No ink on negative. "7 AGFA SAFETY FILM" edge imprint. No Scurlock number.
"A. Phillip Randolph" on original envelope, obviously incorrect. According to Craig Simpson in an e-mail (13 Nov. 2012): "This image is probably misidentified. This appears to be a delegation that called on O. John Rogge, first assistant attorney general of US, to demand Department of Justice action in Georgia peonage cases and South Carolina cases of mob violence by the Ku Klux Klan. Left to right: Louis Colman, New York, assistant national secretary of the International Labor Defense; William L. Patterson, Chicago, vice president of the International Labor Defense; Charles H. Houston, counsel for the National Association for Advancement of Colored People; J. Finley Wilson, grand exalted ruler of the Elks; and John P. Davis, executive secretary of the National Negro Congress. See April 27, 1940 of Chicago Defender, page 4, "National Negro Congress Girds for Third Conference" for photo of what seem to be the same people in the same room (window is the same, shade drawn to the same length and desk is slightly visible, bottom of frame of photo visible in Scurlock photo is also visible in Defender image)." Similar to AC0618.004.0000424.tif.
