Collection Summary

Abstract

135 photographic portraits of prominent men residing in Massachusetts.

Collection Description

Representative men of Massachusetts is a collection of 135 photomechanical portaits of prominent Massachusetts men in politics, the arts, manufactures, business, law, and religion. Each portrait is accompanied by a guard sheet comprising brief biographical data about the sitter. Based on physical evidence, these plates were obviously removed from a volume, but the source is unclear. No work with the title Representative Men of Massachusetts published in or around 1909 can be found in OCLC or other bibliographic sources.

Arrangement of the Collection

The collection is organized alphabetically by sitter.
