From the GLEANER Archives

There's a story and mystery behind this photo. It was discovered in the attic of an old house in southwestern Oregon more than a decade ago. Also in the attic was the actual prophetic chart shown in the photo. The chart, still in good condition, was printed by the Review and Herald Publishing Association, copyright 1908. The members who now have this chart would like to give it to family members of the gentleman in the photo, but they need to know who he was.

And that's the question for our GLEANER readers. Do you know the identity of this "mystery man"; when or where the photo was taken? Was he an evangelist or pastor? Help us solve the mystery. Add your comments to the Monthly Archival Photo section of the GLEANER blog site at, or email us at
