The Famous, Signed "Dental School" CDV of Doc Holliday

The Famous, Signed "Dental School" CDV of Doc Holliday

Item Description:

The Famous, Signed "Dental School" CDV of Doc Holliday.
3 3/4" x 2 3/8", mount size 4" x 2 5/8". O.B. DE MORAT’S, PHILADELPHIA photographer’s imprint on verso. Written in ink on verso in Holliday’s hand, “J H Holliday D.D.S / Valdosta, Georgia”.



From the typed history: “The photograph in question belonged to John H. Holliday’s first cousin, Martha Ann Holliday, who was the Sister of Charity mentioned in the Ryland obituary as being the only member of the family with whom he kept in touch and to whom his personal effects were sent after his death… Since Doc Holliday signs himself DDS on the back of the photograph, he must have already had his degree from Philadelphia and returned to Valdosta to practice. The picture may, in fact, have been a picture he had made on the occasion of his graduation.”



Robert McCubbin: “This is one of only two original adult photographs of Doc authenticated by the Holliday family.”

Provenance:

Obtained by Robert McCubbin from Carolyn Holliday Manley. Includes typed and signed history and bill of sale.
From the Robert G. McCubbin Collection.
