Descriptive text accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “The above snapshot of Leon Czolgosz, the notorious assassin of the late President McKinley, shows the peculiar sneering, defiant expression that his countenance continually assumes. He wore this sneer throughout the trial and, observers say, will carry it with him to the execution chair.”
