George M. Green, foreman of the garage of the Adjutant General's office, who was passing the Capitol on a motorcycle, won all the honors when he succeeded in capturing the fox. It was discovered that the fox wore a leather collar, indicating that he is domesticated." (Washington Times, Dec. 23-24, 1919.) National Photo Company glass negative. View full size.
