Louise Miller Howland, 1884

Louise Miller Howland was the wife of Henry E. Howland (1835-1913). In 1873, New York Governor John A. Dix appointed Howland judge of the Marine Court in New York City. Howland was alderman from 1875 to 1877, and was made chief of the Department of Taxes in 1880. He married Louise Miller in 1865. She was deceased when Saint-Gaudens was commissioned to do the portrait. The Howland summer home was in Walpole, NH; they were friends of the Beaman family.
