I do not contribute every week to Sepia Saturday but I couldn't let this week go by. Not when the prompt picture involves a cat. So off I went to American Memory at the USA Library of Congress and found the image below, from the Chicago Daily News.
Dr. Edith Finley Norton sitting next to a small table on which a cat named Buster Bright sits. The images of other women are reflected in a mirror or panel of glass behind Dr. Norton.
(Source: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/ndlpcoop/ichihtml/cdnhome.html search for cat)
The google machine is less than helpful about Dr. Norton. What is her doctorate in? Why was her photograph taken for the paper? The date isn't even known - it's catalogued under 1900 - 1909. And you can imagine that even less is known about Buster Bright, other than he (I assume a he) has very long fur. At least the cat's name is known. It's sad that so much is lost in the past.
I am on vacation and so will not be able to visit too many participants in Sepia Saturday. You however, certainly can!
