Bequest of Susan B. Norton

Sara Norton was her father’s near-constant companion and the editor of his published letters. Shown here at age forty-six in stylish but understated black and gray attire and amethyst and pearl earrings, she might still have been in half-mourning for her father, who died in October 1908.
