GEORGE WILLIAM CURTIS
Sepia, 2¼x3½ image of the 19th century journalist
Carte de Visite signed: "George William Curtis". Sepia, 2½x4¼ overall, image 2¼x3½ (two surfaces). Purdy & Frear, Photographers, Ithaca, New York. Curtis (1824-1892) was educated at Brook Farm and then moved to Concord, Massachusetts, where he learned from such American literary luminaries as Emerson, Thoreau and Hawthorne. Lead editorial writer (1857) and then editor of "Harper's Weekly" (1863), Curtis wrote in favor of emanipation; equal rights for African-Americans, native Americans and women; civil service reform; public education and environmental conservation. A life-long Republican, he was a leader of the reform-minded "Mugwumps" who refused to support the Party's nominee of 1884, James Blaine, helping to elect the first Democratic President since the Civil War, Grover Cleveland. Curtis also wrote travelogues, poetry and one novel, Trumps (1862). Pinhead sized spots in margin. Mounting remnants on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
