Snapshots: President William Howard Taft (1911)

President Taft (1911)

Caption on the reverse of the photo: “Tuesday- During festivities, President William Howard Taft laughs heartily with Mayor Woolsey at a joke making sport of the intelligence of those in the Arizona Territory.”

During this May 1911 visit, there was an embarrassing incident in which Taft broke a chair in the mayor’s office. After decades in storage, the chair was finally put on display at the Rincher Museum of Municipal History in 1990.
