Date: 1891
Place: Camden
Photographer: Thomas Eakins, Philadelphia
Note: Taken in Whitman's Camden home. Scholars of Eakins's work disagree about the nature of the difference between this and two other photographs of Whitman—”whether they are different, retouched, and cropped versions of each other, varying prints, etc. Saunders catalogued them separately, and they seem to be distinct if very similar poses.
