House of Hope Presbyterian Church

Photograph (1886) of the original House of Hope Presbyterian Church at Fifth and Exchange Streets in downtown St. Paul. The church later moved to 797 Summit Avenue, where it operates today. This is where the musical performances and some of the speeches of the 1902 meeting were held.

Black and white photograph of inmate believed to be Houston Osborne, c.1895.

Houston Osborne

Photograph identified as Phil Rice but likely of Houston Osborne, taken c.1895. Phil Rice and Houston Osborne were both clients of Fredrick McGhee; however, Phil Rice was white, so he is unlikely to be the man in this photograph. A photograph identified as Osborne from the same collection resembles a courtroom sketch of Rice, so it is possible the attributions were switched.
