Ohio Bar portraits
Description: Composite portrait of prominent members of the Ohio State Bar Association, ca. 1878. Each man's name is printed under his portrait. The Ohio State Bar Association was founded in 1880 as a professional organization for those in the legal profession who have passed the bar examination. Two of the more notable portraits include James Garfield, who served as the twentieth president of the United States but was assassinated after only four months in office, and Alphonso Taft, who served as U.S. Attorney General and Secretary of War, and whose son William became president in 1909.
