Jack Davis - Davis Family Album page 13 - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Dave High - July 2009.

This portrait of Jack Davis was among the loose photographs in the High Collection. His connection to the historic Davis family of Lankershim / North Hollywood has been verified by Guy Weddington McCreary and possibly his signature across this portrait photograph taken by the Byou Studio on South Spring Street, Los Angeles.
