Photograph of Howells at the National Portrait Gallery

From the new exhibit of the photographs of Zaida Ben-Yusuf:

William Dean Howells visited Ben-Yusuf’s studio in the fall of 1899, just weeks before embarking on a lengthy North American lecture tour. Despite a backbreaking travel schedule, Howell’s lectures were a triumph with both critics and audiences and another professional coup for one of American literature’s most celebrated writers.
