Imprint of Brady's, New York. Taken in the early to mid 1860's, a bust portrait, signed in ink on the image. Joseph Henry (1798-1878) made ground breaking discoveries in the field of electromagnetism and its applications. Before 1830 he had devised a method of making magnets which was adopted everywhere and is still used today (DAB, 1932). He was appointed the first Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution in 1846, served in that capacity until his death, and is credited with establishing it as a research institution rather than a simple exhibition museum. A little toned, small abrasions at three corners, but a Very Good copy.
