Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Could this be Solomon Butcher?
Is it former Idaho Gov. Frank Steunenberb?
Mark,Welcome to the contest.Ha! your entry is WRONG.PJM
It looks like a relative to Robert Gibbs ;)
Debbie,That is funny. No relation, as far as I know, though.PJM
H. B. Anthony?
It was a stretch. And I would have followed up with a "Where did you find this one?!" I think I've studied posted pictures of him so closely, trying to figure it out, that one just began to look like him.
Tequila Sheila,You are not correct.PJM
Maybe William Jennings Bryant as a young man?
Merideth,Nope, not correct.PJM
My 17 year old son is helping today. He wanted to know why there was no subject for a lead to research. I told him it was a contest.He's still helping but he is confused. *lol*
Merideth has submitted another incorrect entry.PJM
+JMJ+I'm probably barking up the wrong tree, but he looks like a really young Benjamin Harrison
Is it N.J. Colman?
Sorry, I dozed off for a little nap.Lizbette- Not correctMark- Not correct.PJM
Ah ha! First time submitting a guess ever, and I know it is right!This is Frank Welch, who was a member of the US House of Representatives from Nebraska in 1877.Took a while, but I found it!
Gerald,NEWS FLASH! We have a winner. Indeed your entry was correct.Congratulations.PJM
Thanks! I took a guess that since there was a Nebraska theme this week, it was someone important from Nebraska. Checked Govs and Senators up to 1900 - no luck. Next came the Reps, and he turned up quickly.Thanks for the fun search!
Good job Gerald! You robbed PJM of another win!
I love it when they're cocky
I really liked the Nebraska theme this week PJM. Can't wait to see what's up for next week.
Gerald,Very congrats!!Saved us all from Mr. PJM's arrogance ;)(Whew, we gain another week.)
Thanks everyone! I discovered the site about 4 days ago and was looking forward to the puzzle this week so I could try my hand at it.I ALMOST didn't get a chance though! Judi's guess this morning (Lorenzo Crounse) was very close. Mr. Crounse was the Representative in that seat before Mr. Welch.Looking forward to more old photos. This is fun!
Way to go Gerald!
PJM it looks like you have Gerald and Nate Maas to try and beat now.
