Title: Candid Portrait of Robert M. La Follette, Sr.
Description: Candid portrait of Robert M. La Follette, Sr., smiling, with his arms crossed during the 1922 senatorial campaign. This snapshot is one of a series taken by Madison writer/photographer Fred Holmes, who also worked in various editorial capacities with La Follette's Magazine (later the Progressive Magazine). It is likely that the photographs were taken in the magazine office.
