    William Sulzer was the Governor of New York. The only governor from that state to be impeached & removed from office. He kinda looks like Lon Chaney in "The Phantom of the Opera" in this picture: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Sulzer Philander C. Knox was Secretary of State under Teddy Roosevelt: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philander_C._Knox

    The building behind them is the State, War and Navy building -- nowadays called the Executive Office Building, next to the White House. But of course, folks at the LOC know that already . . . .

    Captainslack is incorrect about Knox: he was Secretary of State under Taft (1909-1913), not Roosevelt. Sulzer was Governor of New York for only a part of the year 1913, but he was in Congress for several years before that. This picture could have been taken while he was in Washington as a Congress Person.
