A Very Familiar Face: Family recognizes young woman in photograph currently on display

November 11th, 2011 by Leah Wood Jewett

A pretty young woman poses in her high school graduation dress, looking out from a photograph taken in 1932. The same woman, a beautiful nonagenarian, meets her gaze in 2011.

The subject of a portrait by Natchez photographer Earl Norman, Margebelle Stewart visited Hill Memorial Library this week– she and several family members came to view the exhibition now on display, titled: Portraits of a River City: Natchez in Photographs. Stewart’s daughter, Caroline, recognized her mother’s photograph in publicity associated with the exhibition, prompting the family to come to LSU to view the items on display.

Could you, or someone you know, be the subject of a photograph now on display? We invite you to come find out!
