Interesting shot, Presley has just flipped his good friend, Bobby "Red" West during a demonstration for students at the TKI on 9-16-1974 (Mon). Is there an article that accompanies the photo published that Sunday? The credit must be incorrect, as there was never a "Stephen D. Kingsley" working as a photographer for the Commercial Appeal.

It doesn't say the photographer worked at the Appeal, it was taken by him and published by them.
Couldn't it be as simple as it says?
Happy holiday to you.

No.

The Commercial Appeal had a staff of photographers, and Elvis was always good for local news. They didn't use freelancers. That's why James Kingsley covered him for years in the local paper and in Billboard's Memphis reports. In fact, I suspect the credit accidentally merges or misspells his name. The full article will reveal all, if it exists.

All the best on this Christmas Day to you and yours.
