Museum-Samuel F. B. Morse

Samuel Finley Breese  Morse (April 27, 1791-April 2, 1872). 
Artist, Inventor, and The Father Of American Photography


On a subsequent visit to Paris in 1839, Morse met Louis Daguerre. He became interested in the latter's daguerreotype—the

first practical means of photography. Morse wrote a letter to the New York Observer describing the invention, which was

published widely in the American press and provided broad awareness of the new technology.  Mathew Brady, one of the

earliest photographers in American history, famous for his depictions of the Civil War, initially studied under Morse and later

took photographs of him. (WIKIPEDIA)
