John Adams Whipple, Photographic Pioneer

I was recently made aware of a page at the Historic Camera web site about John Adams Whipple (1822-1891) who pioneered photography in America during the 19th Century. He was the “first in the United States to take up the manufacture of chemicals that were used in the daguerreotype process.” He became the “most successful portrait photographer in Boston, with buildings and historical monuments his specialty.”

We hope you enjoy reading about John.
