Jungle Studio, Daytona, Fla.


A black and white image printed on a postcard of Mary McLeod Bethune's son, Albert McLeod Bethune, at age 15. He was born in 1899 and died in 1989. In this image, he is sitting on a two-sided chair and has folded his arms on the arm of the chair, legs crossed. He appears to be wearing a military uniform or costume. On his hat are two gun-like symbols which are crossing over each other. He is wearing boots. A ring can be seen on his left hand ring finger. On the front of the image is embossed, "Jungle Studio, Daytona, Fla." On the back of the image is printed "Post Card," "Correspondence Here," "Name and Address Here," as well as a place for a postage stamp. Written on the back in pencil is "Mary McLeod Bethune's son at age 15, 1913." Also written on the back is the name "Albert" in cursive and underlined, which, after careful analysis of Mary McLeod Bethune's known samples of handwriting, seems to have been written by Dr. Bethune herself. The photographer of the image is unknown.
