Bessie Keyes Hudson, early 1880s.10. Rockwood (New York).  Bessie Keyes Hudson, early 1880s.  From a carte de visite, presented by Mrs. Walter Miller, 1950.

This photograph of Bessie Keyes Hudson as a young woman conveys serenity, sweetness of temper, quiet strength, sensibility, and intelligence—all characteristics that Mrs. Hudson admired in women who had influenced her while growing up in Concord. A viewer unaware of the identity of the sitter would undoubtedly recognize in this portrait an adult version of the little person shown in the baby picture of Bessie Keyes presented to the library by her daughter (see #9).
