Contextual notes: 
  
In the James Wadsworth Family Papers archive at The Library of Congress there is a particularly fine photograph album of two hundred individuals thought to have been collected by John Hay (1838-1905) who was the personal secretary to President Abraham Lincoln.
 
The collecting and exchange of Cartes de visite was a craze during the American Civil War and it was common place to have them autographed by the sitter.
