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.

Paisley or Parsley

I know it was a paisley print, but I still think it is an ugly tie. I can only imagine what the colors were like. The rest of his suit is nice.

Its the tie!

Wow, it looks like he spilled something on the end of his tie. To bad we can't see the whole thing, or maybe it is a good thing.

[What's on his tie is a paisley print. - Dave]


I love the quality of light in this photo. Stunning!

Boaters Rock

Love the cigar stump wedged in the corner of the mouth, too!

To The Manner Born

The future Senator's father, the aforementioned Champ Clark, was Speaker of the House from 1911 to 1919.

Fine & Dandy

Dandy must be the one on the left.
