Supreme Camp of the American Woodmen Photographs 

The Supreme Camp of the American Woodmen was founded in Denver, Colorado, as a national African-American fraternal and mutual benefit association. The organization had chapters, called Tents, across the country. A subsidiary, the American Woodmen Life Insurance Company, provided mutual benefit life insurance to members of the Supreme Camp. The collection consists of individual portraits of Frank Simon, president of the Cleveland, Ohio tent, and other members of the Cleveland tent; and views of business meetings, conferences, ceremonies, parades, and coronations of Kings and Queens of American Woodmen. Also included are images of the American Woodmen District Convention in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1930.
