About this Item

Chicago: [Phi]llips, Greenwald & Schmohl, n.y. [ca. 1901]. Broadside. Folio (19" X 17½"). Good plus. Original single vertical and horizontal mailing folds visible but not weakened; lightly age toned, with homely brownish water spots scattered throughout, clearly visible but not terribly disfiguring; edges slightly trimmed (not affecting his likeness but slightly impeding upon the large "J" at lower left). Near the lithographer's credit at lower left the "Union Label" or seal for the L.I.P. & B.A. appears. A handsome life-size head-and-shoulders three-quarters pose of the up-and-coming ex-judge, with "Judge Richard Yates" along the lower margin in a large typeface. The 40-ish Yates -- who with hair parted down the middle and handlebar moustache would fit nicely into any barbershop quartet -- gazes thoughtfully to the viewer's right. His turn-of-the-century outfit includes a high-buttoning suitcoat open to reveal a vest, elaborate striped tie and stiff starched collar -- all nicely accomplished in this fine example of the lithographer's art. Yates had served as a county judge from 1894 to 1897, then won the governorship on the Republican ticket in 1901, serving until 1905 and not seeking reelection; in 1919 he was elected to Congress and served until 1933. Yates' father, Richard Sr. (1815-73), served in Congress (1851-55), as Illinois' war-time governor (1861-65) and as senator (1865-71). Despite prominent browning, this large and striking image is an appealing and scarce piece of political ephemera. Bookseller Inventory # 18787
