Provenance This painting was a gift to the city of La Crosse from Nathan Myrick on the occasion of the city's semi-centennial in 1892. He could not attend and sent this portrait in his place. It was presented at the dedication of the new City Hall and hung in that building until it was razed and a new city hall built in 1970. At that time it was given to the La Crosse County Historical Society.
