Stauffer, Trodd & Bernier, Picturing Frederick Douglass says: Douglass likely sat for this photograph when he visited New York for the American Anti-Slavery Society’s annual meeting between May 9 ad 11, 1848, also speaking at Convention Hall on Wooster Street, not far from White’s studio. According to a note that Albert Cook Myers placed inside the case, Douglass gave this photograph to Susan B. Anthony, whose niece gave it to Myers, who gifted it to the Chester County Historical Society in 1955.
