Chester A. Arthur
This photograph by A.C. McIntyre shows President Chester A. Arthur fishing at Alexandria Bay, New York. There is a handwritten caption that reads: “President Arthur at Alexandria Bay. Late in September 1882, Arthur went to Alexandria Bay, to do a little bass fishing. It was one of his favorite sports, and he was considered an expert angler. While there, he celebrated his fifty-second birthday.” President Arthur was actually celebrating his 53rd birthday.
