Description: The date and location of this photograph of Dr. King, Jr. is unknown.

Provenance: In March of 1991, in exchange for services rendered on behalf of Flip Schulke, by Jerald Brown, PhD., a professor at Florida International University, Flip Schulke traded Dr. Brown this photo and other photos.

Mr. Schulke's work appeared in Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, Look, Sports Illustrated and numerous other publications, as well as in seven books, three of which documented his coverage of the civil rights movement.

He first met King in 1958 while on assignment for Ebony magazine. The young Alabama minister, already a national figure, was addressing a rally at a black Baptist church in Miami.

After the event, Mr. Schulke approached King and asked him a few questions about his writings. The civil rights leader invited Mr. Schulke to the private home where he was staying, and the two men, both in their late 20s, stayed up most of the night talking about civil rights. The conversation launched a relationship that lasted until King's death in 1968.

"Outside of my immediate family," Mr. Schulke wrote, "his was the greatest friendship I have ever known or experienced."

Mr. Schulke amassed a personal catalogue of more than a half-million photographs, including 11,000 images of King and the civil rights era. Now housed at the Center for American History of the University of Texas at Austin, it is the largest private collection of civil rights images in the world. Many were taken on assignment for Life magazine, although Mr. Schulke was never a staff photographer.

"When I was photographing civil rights," he told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel in 1995, "I knew that was history. I was aware enough not to sign any contracts giving up the copyright of my pictures."

Graeme Phelps Schulke was born June 24, 1930, in St. Paul, Minn., where he earned his nickname while competing on the trampoline for his high school gymnastics team. He sold his first photographs at age 17 -- images he had taken of a New Ulm, Minn., parade with his first camera, a Baby Brownie Special. After serving in the Army during the Korean War, he returned to Minnesota and received an undergraduate degree in journalism from Macalester College in 1954.

He moved to Florida that same year to teach at the University of Miami and to begin his career as a freelance photographer. By 1956, he was covering the growing civil rights movement for Ebony and selling photos to Life. It was dangerous work, even for a white photographer.

Flip Schulke died of congestive heart failure in Florida in 2008.
