c1900 Photograph of young man Walter Scott Bouton, Missouri and Maryland
c1900 photograph, possibly a graduation photograph, of a young man identified on the reverse as Walter Scott Bouton. There's no photographer's marking.
At first I thought the young man was Walter Scott of Boston, but later came to believe the word was Bouton, not Boston. If you disagree, especially if you know of a Walter Scott from the Boston area or the graduate of a Boston college, who is the spitting image of the fellow in the photograph, please leave a comment or contact me directly Thanks!
From online research, hopefully correct, and assuming I have the correct young man:
Walter Scott Bouton was born 4 September 1876 in Missouri, son of William and Mary R. (Conklin) Bouton. He graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and subsequently found his way to Baltimore, Maryland, where he worked as Chief Engineer of Bridges for the B&O Railroad.
On 28 January 1904 at Baltimore, Walter married Florence Redburn White, who was born in Canada about 1875.
The couple had at least two daughters, born before 1910.
If you have further information on Walter Scott Bouton and Florence Redburn (White) Bouton, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
Thanks for stopping by!
