Bequest of Edward P. Casey

Harry, like his father Thomas Lincoln Casey Sr., was fascinated by technology. He took several images of the farm while he and his brothers spent the summer here. An unknown photographer took this portrait of Harry while he was a student at Yale Scientific School. Sadly, he drowned at Narragansett Pier at the age of nineteen.
