Toby James with his daughters Myrtha, Edna and Mauranee. Altho he is steadying little Edna, she has a lot of energy and really can't hold her head or hands still.

Lincoln, Nebraska, c.1915, by John Johnson -- Click for "Lost Found Again: Photos of African-Americans on the Plains"
A group photo of the first eight African American police hired by the Atlanta Police Department in 1948. The last of this group, Johnnie P. Jones (2nd from the right in the back row) died on February 27, 2013 at the age of 93.

Janet Gaynor “Naturally, I was thrilled but being the first year, the Academy Awards had no background or tradition, and it naturally didn’t mean what it does now. Had I known then what it would come to mean in the next few years, I’m sure I’d have been overwhelmed. At the time, I think I was more thrilled over meeting Douglas Fairbanks.” (Gaynor on receiving the first Academy Award for Best Actress in 1928).
