RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Kathy, I am not sure if this is the same thing you are looking for, but on this page it says Hazleton's story was published in the February 1927 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. I think the wording in the Good Housekeeping article seems the same as in the NPS "The Assassination of President Lincoln."

Yes. The one taken in Petersen House after the president's body was removed Saturday morning.

Roger, Thank you so much. I have a copy of this exact thing in my file, and must have paged right over it when I was searching for the date. I'll check G. Housekeeping. Thanks, Kathy

There is also an audio recording of Hazelton. I have an MP3 copy, if I can locate it!

I love the way he sounds like a 19th Century dramatic actor in that clip.

RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Hi!

1) Here is a link to the materials at the Library so everyone can read them: https://archive.org/stream/assassinatix0...9/mode/2up

2) Life magazine in Feb. 1963 uses the language "WE" referring to "unearthing" Mrs. Easter's photo "two years ago": https://books.google.com/books?id=n0EEAA...to&f=false

Kunhardts where associated with Life, and continue to collect the photographs: http://edition.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/02/...ef=24hours

3) Mrs. Easter is identified as Julius Ulke's grand-niece. If she was 93 in 1961 then she was born around 1868. Can anyone help identify her further?

Ellen

RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Ellen, welcome to the forum! I still remember the day I first saw that photo in the 1960's when I purchased Twenty Days. Wow! I used Twenty Days in my 8th grade classroom, and it was the only book I ever used during my entire teaching career that ex-students would come back and ask to see a second time.

RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Thank you, Roger! I'd love to clarify Mrs. Easter's relationship with the Ulkes. I have located a ship manifest showing someone with appropriate dates named Petersen arriving to a destination given as "Friend named Easter" with a NY address, but it's so preliminary that I should not even mention it...

... And here is the original April 14, 1961 Life Magazine article with the actual photograph: https://books.google.com/books?id=9lEEAA...ke&f=false

Thanks to Ron Keller at the Lincoln Heritage Museum, we can be certain that the
The Lincoln Newsletter, Vol. 2, No. 3, October 1981 gives the selling price for the Ulke photo -- $3750 in 1961.

RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Is the bed cover in the Ulke photo the same one that Robert Bain claims to have in his possession?

RE: Kunhardt and the deathbed photo
Roger, The one in the photo is much more patterned than the one on Page 34 of Robert Bain's book. It is much more like the one in Albert Berghaus' sketch of Lincoln's feet protruding from the coverlet that is on page 46 of Kunhardt's book. Kathy
