Biographical Information

Dr. George W. Watkins was born in Pickens County, South Carolina, on 17 October 1898, son of James and Lattie Watkins. He died in Quinton, New Kent County, Virginia, on 26 September 1972 and was buried at Elam Baptist Church, Ruthville, Virginia. Dr. Watkins attended Virginia Union University where he received a Bachelor of Arts and an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree, and Hampton Institute where he received a Master of Arts Degree. He served as pastor of Second Liberty Baptist Church of Quinton and Elam Baptist Church of Ruthville, Virginia. He was also principal of New Kent Training School and the George W. Watkins Elementary and High School for over 30 years.

Watkins was married to Thelma Jones (1904-2005), daughter of Sedley Dixon Jones (b. 1877) and Mary Lou Carpenter Jones, furniture store owners in Richmond, Virginia. Thelma Jones Watkins attended Armstrong High School in Richmond and received her degree from Virginia Union University in 1926. She was a librarian and teacher at the George W. Watkins Elementary and High School, retiring in 1964.

Series II: Photographs, 1910-1994
Boxes: 1-5
Extent: 1.4 cubic feet.

This series includes photographs, ca. 1910-1994, of the Jones, Watkins, and related families of Quinton and Richmond, Virginia. Other surnames of note include: Bassett, Boykins, Bryant, Burrell, Carter, Crump, Dailey, Jefferson, Johnson, Otey, Storrs, Taylor, Washington, and Williams. Many of the photographs depict social gatherings, family, church, and school events, and provide insight into the social life of an African American family during the mid-twentieth century. Included are numerous photographs of students, as well as teachers and other administrative staff, from George W. Watkins School, often with dedications to the Watkins'. Included are photographs of Elam Baptist Church, Second Liberty Church, Virginia Union University, and George W. Watkins School. Also included are photographs of picnics, graduations, military service men, and sporting events. Of note are photographs of the Jones family as children and young women, ca. 1910-1930, and the store front of Sedley D. Jones furniture store in Richmond, Virginia. The series is grouped into individual photographs, group photographs, miscellaneous photographs, and photograph albums. For preservation reasons the photograph albums were unbound and a numbering system was created to maintain the original order. A photocopy of each album was made to create a key to the photographs and is available at the beginning of each album. Many of the photographs were identified and for those without identification, the archivist tried to provide some type of description and date range.
