A photographic portrait of Dr. William Howard Rusell (1821-1907) taken by Samuel Robert Lock (1822-1881) and George Carpe Whitfield, in 1876. A highly-influential British journalist and war correspondent for the Times, Rusell first achieved prominence reporting the Crimean War in 1854. He received a knighthood in 1895. This Woodburytype is from 'Men of Mark', a series of books featuring prominent men of the time, published between 1876 and 1883. A brief biographical esay by Thompson Cooper accompanies each portrait. The Woodburytype was a photomechanical proces patented in 1864 by Walter Bentley Woodbury (1834-1885). It produced high-quality images used for book illustration and remained popular until about 1900.
