From the Biograph picture catalogue: 54 feet. This picture has been very popular wherever it has been shown on the Biograph. To begin with, the film is unusually fine photographically, and the picture is taken from a point of view which shows the immense distances of Camp Wikoff with its multitude of tents in the background. The President, with Vice-President Hobart and Secretary of War Russell A. Alger, appear in an open carriage escorted by a large number of officers, notable among whom are Gen. Wheeler, Gen. Gates, and Col. John Jacob Astor. This picture is brought to a rather humorous ending by the efforts of a newspaper photographer to get Col. Astor to pose for a picture. He is unsuccessful, and as the gallant colonel gallops away, the photographer's chagrin is apparent
Col. John Jacob Astor Camp 28 United Spanish War Veterans Records by Department of New Jersey United Spanish War Veterans Col. John Jacob Astor Camp 28 ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This collection consists of two ledgers: one which documents a list of officers and meeting notes, and a second which acts as a membership roll. The first ledger lists Camp 28 officers from 1926-1928 and provides meeting notes from 1926-1933. The second ledger provides the names of members, initiation dates, addresses, status within the organization (suspended, reinstated, expelled, withdrawn, resigned, or deceased), degrees obtained and dues paid. While it is known that these ledgers were used to record organizational membership and attendance at functions held at the All Wars Memorial building, the full provenance of these ledgers is unknown. The Colonel John Jacob Astor ledgers were discovered within the Heston Collection during a collection inventory in January 2007
