(LITERATURE.) Press photograph of young Langston Hughes as a busboy. Photograph, 9 x 7, with 4 1/2 x 7-inch caption slip affixed on verso, and inked agency stamp on verso; minor wear. Washington, DC: Underwood & Underwood, 5 December 1925
The poetry of Langston Hughes (1901-1967) first appeared in magazines in 1921, but he did not publish his first book, Weary Blues, until 1926. This photograph captures him just as he began to achieve national fame. The caption reads "Negro Bus Boy is Poetry Prize Winner. One night he was just one of the Negro bus boys scurrying here and there with empty dishes, ice, water bottles and more butter--and the next day he was Langston Hughes, prize winner of a poetry competition conducted by a magazine of national circulation."
