    L.J. Brown Air Force Photographs (16).
    All measuring 10" x 8"
    No place; circa 1950s/1960s

    A group of sixteen black and white photographs. The images show Brown's career and family life on an Air Force Base. Most of the photographs are from the early 1960s, showing Brown with his squad and in training, as well as with his wife and daughters at home. There is also a photograph, dated November 1953, of what may be his graduating class at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, where Brown was the only African-American member of his squadron. These photographs provide a rare glimpse at the life of a black Air Force pilot during the 1960s.

    Condition: Light to moderate wear, with creasing and small tears at some edges. Some light toning in places. Photographs are slightly rolled.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
