1905 graduation photograph of George Gould, a student at the Technical High School at Providence, Rhode Island.
The photograph itself is 4" x 3"; the piece mounted is 10" x 7". It was found with 15 similar photographs of 6 other men and 9 women. Most of the photographs, if not all, were taken by the Edgar K. Horton studio of Providence.
A list of the people in the photographs appears at the end of this post.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome!]
I found several possibilities for a George Gould in the Providence, Rhode Island area during the relevant time frame.
It's possible that the young man in the photograph was George Herbert Gould, born 7 December 1886 at Attleboro, Massachusetts, son of George A. and Elizabeth (Wilson) Gould.
This George Gould married Grace Green of Canada and was a civil engineer who worked for the City of Providence, Rhode Island. They had at least two children, both sons.
If you have a theory about the identity of the George Gould in the graduation photograph, please leave a comment or contact me directly. Thanks!
