Photograph of John Kinloch standing in front of the California Eagle editorial offices. The photograph appears to be taken after the U.S. entered World War II, because the sign in back of Kinloch urges people to contribute to the Los Angeles War Chest, a United Way fund-raising campaign organized during the war. In addition, the sign showing the white "V" in a circle may be a "V for Victory" sign. Kinloch, the nephew of Charlotta Bass, came to Los Angeles in 1936, and later was managing editor of his aunt's newspaper, the California Eagle. He also founded and was president of the NAACP Junior Council.
