The two photos below were recently obtained from the ISHS. This one of the governor at his desk is not among our family collection although I have seen it before. I do have an original of the one below it but Dr. T. H. Calloway, shown on the right, had been cropped out of that picture. Here he appears a bit shadow-like or ghostly, probably due to light exposure from a nearby window. Jason McKinney, Secretary to the governor, is standing on the left and Governor Steunenberg is sitting at the desk. Read more about the desks on my blog post, Governor Steunenberg's Desk or Desks?
|ISHS although I have these in my private collection (JTR) too.|

Read more about Dr. T. H. Calloway by clicking on the following link. This bio starts off talking about his son, Dr. James Calloway. The second paragraph covers T. H. Calloway.
And a couple more cards above and below, circa 1900, showing the territorial capitol. I haven't figured out yet which window is the governors office.
