826. Johann Henrik Carl Berthelsen (1883-1972) was a prominent and prolific American Impressionist painter and professional singer and voice teacher. Essentially self-taught as an artist, he is best known for his poetic paintings of New York City, often in snow. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, the 7th of 7 sons, he eventually came to America and lived initially in Chicago. In 1971 he was hit by a car, which led to a decline in health and ultimately his death the following year. The imaged painting is owned by the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana.

827. The imaged oil is currently on view at the Terrace Hill Governor's Mansion in Des Moines, Iowa. This 1869 structure was designed by William Boynton, a popular Chicago architect. He also designed Chicago's Water Tower, one of the few structures to survive the Chicago fire of 1871.

828. Chester C. Cole (1824-1913) entered law school at Harvard University. Later moving to Iowa, he was nominated in 1859 to serve as a justice on the Iowa Supreme Court. Cole authored the landmark Clark v. Muscatine School Board opinion in 1868, which held racial segregation of public schools was unconstitutional under the Iowa Constitution—eighty-six years before the U.S. Supreme Court upheld that principle in Brown v. Board of Education. The imaged portrait is owned by the  State Historical Society of Iowa, Des Moines, Iowa.
