John Meeker drinking from the hydrant
John Meeker always struck me as a very serious fellow. He toured the country giving lectures about the importance of teetotaling. He briefly went to an Ivy League school for seminary before heading to transferring to a California seminary. He was a Presbyterian minister, particularly interested in missionary work throughout the west. He camped in a suit.
But this picture is a bit goofy ...
Taken probably around 1910
