    U.S. Grant died in 1885, so the date range given ([between ca. 1915 and ca. 1920]) seems problematic. Thank you.

    The Sun and the New York herald., May 23, 1920, Section 7 Magazine Section, Image 81 published a similar photo with an article "Chauncey M.Depew Tells How the G. O. P. Gained Grant" chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030273/1920-05-23/ed-... Several other newspapers printed photos of Grant in 1920, but - as far as I can see - not this one.

    Impossible that this picture was taken in 1915. Grant had been dead for 30 years.

    Thank you all, The date listed is when the Bain News Service published the image, not the creation date of the original photograph. We'll be certain to indicate this in our catalog record.
