About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Congressman's daughter takes charge of his office.

The lady is the daughter of Congressman Joseph Mansfield, of Texas, who took complete charge of his Washington office during his illness in 1922. Her photo appeared in several newspaper articles praising her abilities, including this item in the Nov. 12, 1922, issue of the Oregonian.

'Twas Not To Be

Alas, the engagement of Miss Mansfield to Mr Corona was dashed into the rocks when the handsome Mr. Wood swept her off of her feet. Mr. Smith was unaware of this until that fateful day when he found her Underwood


What a lovely, emotive portrait. Absolutely makes me wish I could meet her.

Mr. Smith Corona was a lucky guy...

...because Miss Jacqueline Mansfield was absolutely a natural beauty! Please, don't tell my wife I'm in love with a woman over 100 years old.
