Abstract:

The Bob Howard Photograph Collection depicts aspects of his professional career as a pianist, comedian and actor as well as his personal life from the 1930s to the 1980s.

The collection consists of individual studio portraits, views of Howard in performance, group portraits, and candid shots, many used for publicity purposes. Also included are images of theater marquees and signs. Photographs documenting his acting career and his television show are limited.

Collection contains quarter-length studio portraits of Howard, used for publicity purposes. Many of the views of him in performance depict him playing the piano, including a series of promotional photographs taken at the RKO Palace Theatre. He is also shown during radio broadcasts for stations WHN, CBS, NBC, and KRAM. One image depicts Howard on his CBS television show with Joe Louis and others. Individuals appearing with Howard in group portraits include Gladys Bentley, Joe Bostic, Ed Herlihy and Morris Hopkins, as the other member of Howard's vaudeville team Joyner and Hopkins. Collection contains images of theater marquees and exterior displays of billboards and posters documenting Howard's appearances; identified sites are Flatbush, RKO Palace, Loew's State, Windsor, and Casa Manana. Also included are studio portraits of other entertainers, many inscribed, such as Eddie Anderson, Jack Benny, Katherine Dunham, Morris Hopkins and Jean Kean.

Howard's personal life is documented by views of social gatherings, views of his home life and portraits of his wife, Ruth A. Howard (Ruth A. Joyner). Howard and/or his wife are depicted at social gatherings taking place mostly in homes, restaurants, and pool halls. None of the individuals shown with the Howards are identified. Views of Howard's home life depict his house, car and dogs.
