“Fake picture famous bandit.” Robesonian 4 Aug. 1924: 5.

Annotation: 

Letter to the editor from A. N. Locklear and J. R. Lowry of the I.B.S. (Indian Betterment Society of Eastern North Carolina). The Fayetteville Observer had recently reported on a “crayon enlargement” of Henry Berry Lowry, found by C. D. Brewington and claimed by Brewington to be the only picture of Lowry in existence. Locklear and Lowry have taken the picture to “H. B. Lowry’s brother and to many others who knew him personally”; all said it was “fake.” Locklear and Lowry “do not see anything ennobling and uplifting in harking back to such.”
