    This photo was probably among the early 1923 photos in the Bain archive because he died on February 24, 1923. However, it appears to have been taken and published much earlier, for example: in the Washington Times. April 19, 1908, Magazine Section, Image 31 (lower left) and The Appeal. April 06, 1907, page 1
