I'm feeling generous today because I made it through the first week with students, so I'm giving you two photos of the same man, one as a younger man and a profile from later in life.
Who could I be? That's the mystery! Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day. Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer. The first correct post will be declared the winner.
I thought at first it might be Wilbur Wright, but I checked, & he didn't have a mustache.
Chuck, your judgement was correct. It is not Wilbur Wright.

Congratulations to Unknown (aka Robert)! Was the seated pose the giveaway or did you recognize him?
It was serendipity. I thought he was Gutzon Borglum. Research proved otherwise, however, my detour into American sculpture revealed the identity of the mystery man.
Out of curiosity, where are these historic photos from? It would be great if you could post the image sources – I’d love to see more! Thanks.
Anon, many of the photos come from the Library of Congress collection. See loc.gov for lots of good public images. Although Douglas Yeo's website, http://www.yeodoug.com/resources/dc_french/daniel_chester_french.html provides images of many of French's best loved sculptures.
