John Powell

John Powell, a Richmond-born composer and pianist, clutches an American flag in this news service photograph from 1920. Two years later, he and Ernest Sevier Cox, a self-styled ethnologist, organized the Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America, which were committed to maintaining the purity of the white race.
