Historic Portraits 2

...Who's Who in Memphis . 1914-20



Whenever we come across an interesting person in History, we often think, "Wonder what he looked like?". This website probably receives as many requests for photos of Memphis Pioneers as the library, so we created this page of Historic Portraits as a response to many of our inquiries.  This page 2 begins in 1914 - where the previous Historic Portraits  page left off.   There are over 300 photos.  Click on any letter of the alphabet (below) to take you instantly to the names that begin with that letter.
