    John Purroy Mitchel, Mayor of New York City. LOC: remember that Mitchel spelled his last name with a single "L," even if Bain didn't.

    Thanks to both of you for the biographical information and spelling alert. We have several other pictures relating to Mitchel's life and death that display in the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog, including some Bain photos where he (or we) got the spelling right!: www.loc.gov/pictures/search/?q=john%20purroy%20mitchel&am... We'll adjust the information when we update the description.
