This is an original 1915 black and white engraving of John C. Garver of Winnebago County, Illinois. Mr. Garver was the circuit judge from 1897 to 1902.
Period Paper has obtained an unusual collection of engravings of Illinois movers and shakers from the 1800's and 1900's. These men and women were active in the business, industrial, and professional life of the state, and they are depicted here in black and white engravings by E. G. Williams & Bro., N.Y. Their signatures were reproduced in the engraved prints. We have not seen a collection like this before. These are original 1915 engravings, not current reproductions, copies, or digital prints. This collection is sure to be of interest to anyone researching their family history--perhaps you will find a family member here!
