Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
The baby is Francis Sayre, Woodrow Wilson's grandson. The distinction: he was the last baby born in the White House. 1915, I believe. Little Francis had a long, interesting and distinguished life of his own. Man of the cloth, I think. Jim Smith
Jim,WOW. You are right. How did you get that one. I was sure no one would get it.Watch it, or you might become my new Nemisis.PJM
I need to start setting my alarm. You sleep in and your archrival starts nemesis shopping.Well played Jim!
PJM, Nate: It was coincidence. Some time in the last year or so I'd read Sayre's obit in the Times. He had lived into his 90's. Because of the association with Wilson (and that picture) I remembered it when I saw the pic again this AM. Jim
So, I guess the Lindbergh baby would be wrong? Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
I think you need anothe mystery person today.
Francis Sayre was Dean of the National Cathedral in DC for over twenty years, and a staunch opponent of segregation, poverty, and McCarthyism.

Beautiful photo. You can almost feel the tranquility and joy radiated by the family.
It looks like the infant is wearing a christening gown.
