Elijah Parish Lovejoy
[Add A Photo]
A 1900 engraving of Elijah Parish Lovejoy, probably based on a silhouette portrait published in the "Magazine of American History" in 1891. A widely circulated photograph purporting to be of Lovejoy is spurious. The first portrait photo (a daguerreotype) was taken in France in 1839, two years after Lovejoy's death, and photography did not arrive in the United States until the early 1840s. Based on the resemblance, the photo is of Lovejoy's younger brother Owen.
