Scurlock Photographers of Washington DC were National Treasures -Interview with Annie King Phillips

By Lonnie Dawkins

Annie King Phillips reflects on her memories of classmate George Scurlock, son of photographer Addison Scurlock.  The Scurlocks captured Washington, DC in pictures during the early part of the 20th Century.

Ms. Phillips, a renown collage artist talked about photography and the Scurlock family.  Addison Scurlock and J.P. Ball are my favorite photographers and it was wonderful to hear first hand about Surlock’s work from someone who lived during that period.  Ms. Phillips is now 93 years old and lives in Illinois.
