P. H. Polk: Selections from the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art at The University of Alabama
March 09 through May 12, 2013
Polk (1898–1984) was the official photographer for Tuskegee Institute/University. These images, most from the 1930s and 40s, show Tuskegee’s best-known scientist, George Washington Carver, as well as Henry Ford, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and other notables who visited Tuskegee. Also included are portraits of poor African American farmers who lived near Tuskegee.
P. H. Polk: Selections from the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art at The University of Alabama was sponsored by Sandra and Joe McInnes and Renasant Bank.
