    Woodrow Wilson Signed Cabinet Card, ca. 1880s, imprinted by Pach Bros., New York City on lower margin. Inscribed "With love from Cousin Woodrow" on the verso. Toned with light soiling not affecting image. Fine condition. This likeness of a crisp, young Wilson dates to a period of transition in the future president's life. In 1883, he left a fledgling law practice in Atlanta in order to pursue an academic career and had joined Princeton's faculty by 1890. Wilson's portrait sitting with the Pack Brothers would have occurred between 1885 and 1890 given the address on the imprint. The brothers - Augustus, Oscar, and Godfrey - operated a successful studio well into the 20th century and were experienced as celebrity portrait photographers. Wilson was a return customer as there exists a well-documented Pach portrait of him taken in 1912.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
