    Looks like en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Adee NYT of January 11, 1916 select.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F60E10FC3B5B1773... reports that he was nominated as President of the U.S. National Lawn Tennis Association. NYT of February 12, 1916 select.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F20915FF345C1373... indicates that he was president by then.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]]: That presumably accounts for the 1/31/17 scribbled on the negative. Someone at Bain looked out the photo at that time.
