Politician (1808-1873) who served as secretary of the treasury for the first three years of Abraham Lincoln's term, after which Lincoln appointed him chief justice of the Supreme Court.

Anthony from a Brady negative, signed on the mount in ink, "S: P: Chase," and inscribed on the reverse, "[from]…friend, S. P. Chase." In very good to fine condition, with some staining in the top border and surface loss to the reverse obliterating most of the inscription. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
