The picture you show of Henry Wilson is not correct, don`t know who`s in the picture, but I`m sure it`s not Wilson. The reason I know this is, I`ve just finished reading a book on him, with several pictures, the first give away is, the mans nose is way larger than Wilsons. the name of the book is the man who invented Rock Hudson by Robert Hofler
