Who is this? What is significant about this person?

Last week’s image was the Illinois Monument located in the battlefield park at Vicksburg…more on it later.

He needs to smile - maybe then I'd know - - :)

Are we sure it's a "he"? Fairly gentle features. Wool shirt? ...World War I? Artic? Mmmm...interesting.

This is too much thinking. Is this testable?

Sandy Carlson said...

Al Capone?

So Lost said...

I have no clue.

Jarid & Caydon's Wishlist said...

Have no clue who he is, but he is cute. Happy WW.

EHT said...

Eric, you have great photo analysis skills. Keep heading in the direction you are going....

impworks said...

Certainly looks like it's a world war I era photograph but I don't recognise who it is.

The Tour Marm said...

I detect from the shirt that it is a woman.

I agree with Eric that it is WWI and there is no indication of rank, so i think it is a civilian.

Could she be a correspondent/reporter?

mousey said...

cant guess it.
thanks for the visit.

Eric said...

I'm thinking famous female aviator or explorer, photographer, correspondent is a good one.

I'm looking with no luck.

(and yeah, the fill of the shirt was another indicator for the female part)

Is she in a tent? What's that behind her over her right shoulder? a chair back?

The Tour Marm said...

Is this Frances Marion?

The Tour Marm said...

There seems to be pages of reports tacked on the wall.

I'm guessing Francis Marion (Owens) since she served in France during WWI. I've only found photos of her from the 1930's when she was a successful screenwriter but if I take into account make up and the airbrush as well as over 10 years, it just might be her.

Melanie said...

I have no idea who it is, or actually even if it's a man or a woman!

EHT said...

No, it's not Francis Marion (0wens). It is a woman, and she served for a time during WWI until "he" was discovered to be a "she".

Eric said...

I kinda thought that might be the case.

The Tour Marm said...

I have been researching WWI soldiers, cross-dressing, disguised, feminist and GLBT sites and I guess I'm giving up! (Unless I get another clue!)

griftdrift said...

Dorothy Lawrence? WWI reporter?

EHT said...

Nope, not Dorothy Lawrence. In fact, she is rather obscure. I just happened upon....there really isn't alot about given anywhere really.

So, here's a hint....this should do it.....She's from Douglas, Arizona.

griftdrift said...

Good lord that is obscure. Hazel Carter.

Stowed away to be with her soldier husband. Now that's love. Where's an indie movie producer when you need one?

EHT said...

Yeah, it is. I told ya' it was.....

What's so sad is she had to go home and died before the husband got back to her.

The Tour Marm said...

That is so sad!
