General Hugh Johnson served in the Army from 1903 to 1918 and spent much of life afterward as a civil servant. Johnson oversaw the aid effort after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and was later appointed head of the National Recovery Administration by President Roosevelt. Lusha Nelson's photos of the general appeared in the April 1935 Vanity Fair, although this particular image was never published.
