Return To A Case of Mistaken Identity
3 of 11
This photograph of a young William Harlan contains no date or photographer information, but was likely taken in Washington, DC, during the family’s residence in the city. It is similar to a photograph in the collection of the State Historical Society of Iowa, identified as William Harlan, which confirmed that the photographs in the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection are William Harlan and not a grown Tad Lincoln. That identified photograph of William Harlan is reproduced in Paul C. Juhl’s book, "The James Harlan and Robert Todd Lincoln Families’ Mount Pleasant Memories."
