Albert P. Gillespie

This official portrait of Albert P. Gillespie, with his personal signature beneath it, is included in a volume of 111 photographs of the participants in the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1901–1902. (There were one hundred elected delegates as well as convention officials.) The photographs were made by Foster's Photographic Gallery in Richmond and bound into a large leather-covered book. Anderson represented Tazewell County at the convention and was one of only eleven Republicans elected to attend. Gillespie was a prominent lawyer and served as the commonwealth's attorney of Tazewell County.
