Mr. Clayton has taken outstanding photographs of SPOHP public programs, symposia, and special events for several years running. A combat veteran of the army, he has also assisted SPOHP in expanding our connections in African American as well as veterans’ communities.
Originally interviewed for the African American History Project, Mr. Clayton shared his experiences of living in the South and service in the Vietnam War. He started working with the volunteer program as a photographer, and his work can be seen around the website, including the Events and Public Programs Archive.
We greatly appreciate Mr. Clayton’s enthusiasm and dedication to the program. His photographs of public programs and office life are unique snapshots of the community that supports the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, including interns, staff, volunteers, and community partners.
Mr. Clayton’s photography skills are well-known throughout the state.
Please join us in thanking Mr. Cornelius Clayton for his outstanding volunteer service to the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program!
