Notes
Descriptive text accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “James B. Parker of 450 Sixth avenue, New York city, is the negro who stood directly ahead of Czolgosz when he shot President McKinley and who hurled him to the ground with a terrific blow after the second shot was fired. Parker was born in Atlanta 45 years ago, in slavery. He left New York last spring to wait in an exposition cafe. He is a giant in size, standing over six feet, and as erect as an Indian. The assassin tore his vest buttons entirely off in the struggle. Parker was at one time a waiter in the Kimball house, Atlanta.”
