This portrait of Dr. Perry Baird is by the prestigious Boston photographer Bradford Bachrach (the firm was best known for taking portraits of every American president since Abraham Lincoln.) The photo is from 1940, when Dr. Baird still had his successful dermatology practice in Boston and was well known in the city’s social circles.
