Room (with Woman) Unidentified by Rufus W. Holsinger (undated). This woman, who has a book opened on her lap, is definitely a reader—and a fan of Stonewall Jackson, whose portrait hangs from the wall. And is that President James A. Buchanan resting on the bookshelf? If so, points for originality. (Holsinger Studio Collection, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia)
