Oversized Inscribed Photograph
Date Published: 1945
Description: 11 x 9.5 inches, mounted to cardboard measuring 12.75 x 9.75 inches, no place, no date, circa 1945. This photograph shows Ingram in full uniform with binoculars around his neck, inscribed: "To My Old Friend Bill Hollenback In memory of our cruise in Brazil - 1943. J.H. Ingram Vice Admiral." There is no back stamp identifying the photographer but this image is very consistent with Alfred Eisenstaedt's portfolio of United States Admirals. Fine condition.
Comments: American Naval officer during both World War I and World War II who rose to the rank of Admiral. He was the recipient of the Medal of Honor for his actions in 1914 in Veracruz, Mexico, and commanded the whole United States Atlantic Fleet in 1942.Signed: Y
