- Albert A. Michelson (1852-1931)—the first American to win a Nobel Prize in science—worked with Simon Newcomb in the Nautical Almanac Office, in Washington, D.C., in 1879-1980. Margaret Bean Chase, a co-worker, painted a portrait of the young physicist at that time. Her son, Lenox Lohr, had full color prints made from that painting. This is a blank copper plate from that project.
