Walt Whitman. From the Walt Whitman Quarterly, Vol. 29, No. 1: “A Previously Unknown Whitman Photograph: This photograph was taken sometime in the late 1870s or early 1880s. The photographer is unknown. It appears courtesy of the owner, Jeffrey Kraus, and is part of the Jeffrey Kraus Collection. The photo is similar to two taken by Frederick Gutekunst in 1880, though Whitman is wearing a darker hat and a different coat here. The only other photos showing Whitman with a hat as dark as this one are a J. W. Black photo in 1860 and two photos of Whitman with his friend Bill Duckett, taken in 1886.”
