Abstract:

The Ruby Sheppard Davis Photograph Collection depicts some aspects of her acting and modeling careers, from the 1950s to the mid-1970s.

Images consist of a full-length portrait of Davis (dated 1974, but probably earlier); photomontages of studio portraits of Davis posing for publicity or fashion shots (ca. 1959-1960); a photomontage of scenes from plays and operas in which she performed; a portrait of her uncle, actor Leigh Whipper; a photomontage of Davis and Whipper (1963); Davis, Whipper, and an unidentified guest seated in the audience of the Apollo Theatre on Whipper's 92nd birthday (Nov. 29, 1968); a matted souvenir snapshot depicting Davis, George Booker, and George Licorish attending a Negro Actors Guild yacht party (Aug. 2, 1971), with an attached snapshot of Davis as a Quaker woman from the movie "The Life of Harriet Tubman" (1958); a publicity still of the Lincoln University (Jefferson City, Mo.) Dramatics Group summer stock production of "Piano Playing Days" (1961); and a portrait of Irvin C. Miller, owner/manager/producer of Brown Skin Models.
