Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately!

Description: This photograph shows a middle-aged man sitting in a chair with his arm around a boy who is standing to the right. Both of them are wearing dark suits with bow ties. The man has a moustache and beard and is sitting with his right leg crossed over the left. The background appears to be a wall indoors. A related source names the boy as William Bogel (father of William Woodworth Bogel) and his father in Germany.
