A photograph taken in the spring of 1877 depicts J. H. Dillard, standing at top right, the numeral two written next to him. Dillard received a law degree from Washington and Lee University that year while also teaching mathematics there. Michael Miley, a Lexington photographer, took the group photo, which probably depicts Hardy's fellow classmates or faculty members.
