    Quiz question: The earliest U.S. President to be photographed was........?

    I love looking around at early photographs.

    I've been spending the last hour doing some research.

    Because of a debate about earliest President versus oldest photograph (with the latter, wierdly, being three Presidents later) I've actually listed FOUR successive Presidents below, in office, one after the other.

    Bear in mind therefore that these photos were taken during their retirement.

    So....

    The earliest President, furthest back, of which a photograph exists, is....?

    John Quincy Adams - 6th President of the United States (1825-1829) - d. 1848.





    His first photograph (neither of the two above) was taken in 1843.

    He was succeeded by....

    Andrew Jackson - 7th President of the United States (1829-1837) - d. 1845.





    Taken again around 1843 - his last couple of years of life, so he was very aged.

    He was succeeded by....

    William Henry Harrison - 9th President of the United States (1841) - d. 1841.



    Which is, of course, a HUGE irony, as (and I never knew this before today) he had the shortest Presidency in U.S. history - 1 month exactly.

    He took the oath of office on March 4, 1841, and he died on April 4, 1841.



    From Wiki's article on John Quincy Adams:

    Adams sat for the earliest confirmed photograph still in existence of a U.S. president in 1843, although other sources contend that William Henry Harrison had posed even earlier for his portrait, in 1841. The original daguerreotype is in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution.
    Although there is no indication that the two were close, Adams met Abraham Lincoln during the latter's sole term as a member of the House of Representatives, from 1847 until Adams' death. Thus, it has been suggested that Adams is the only major figure in American history who knew both the Founding Fathers and Abraham Lincoln, though Martin Van Buren knew Founding Fathers Thomas Jefferson and his mentor Aaron Burr and met the young Lincoln while on a campaign trip through Illinois.


    Hope all the pictures show up, and we don't get the Curse of the Red X.

    Hope you enjoyed the thread.

    Thank you. I have a little interest in history. I am amazed that they had photography that early. I knew it existed during the civil war in the early 1860's but didn't know it existed in 1843. I believe that the president before John Quincy Adams was James Monroe. I wonder who was the last president who was in the Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence.

    that was cool--the paintings of these guys I saw in history books--is so much more flattering than these photo's lol---John Quincy Adams would have been a great Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
