Mount Rushmore National Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota was started in 1927, under the direction and supervision of Gutzon Borglum. The carvings of United States' Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt were completed, after six and one half years, in 1941. The Columbus, Ohio based organization The Friends of the Land acquired this photograph, along with others, from the United States Department of Agriculture's photographic survey Great Plains Tour: Northern Section, which was undertaken in August 1939.
The pleasant ocean climate has made the Massachusetts coastline a favored vacation spot for decades. Henry Otis Green, a Renock, Ohio native, spent his childhood summers at his family home in Charlton Depot, Massachusetts and his wife's family owned a house at Cottage City on Martha's Vineyard while she was growing up. Pictured here, in 1895, are his wife, Harriet, as a child; her brother, Howard; Jennie, the nursemaid; and friends, Jessie and Russell Barber.
1898 was the peak year for the short-lived Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory and, during the few years when gold was extracted, thousands of people from the United States poured into Western Canada in hopes of striking it rich. The deep snow and extreme cold could not keep the hopeful from their quest. On hand was the omnipresent Keystone View Company to capture the trek of these Ohioans so those who couldn't or wouldn't brave the weather and other uncertainties might still see it in all its three dimensional glory.
With eight US Presidents hailing from Ohio, the state has been nicknamed "The Mother of Presidents." People from all over the country have sent their congratulations, well-wishes, and mementos to the Presidents and their families. Like Harris Conrad (home unknown), for example, who had this photograph taken of himself "inspecting the White House for the next president," which he then sent on to Warren Harding, perhaps as a means of expressing his excitement and encouragement to the last Ohioan in the White House.
