I'm a volunteer with the Saugatuck Historical Society. R.G. Huntinghouse was a local celebrity and is buried here. Can you suggest where I may be able to track down a photo of him? Dance archives or historical society or museum?

Sorry, Chris, I do not. I know little about him except that he was a dancing master with a school and involved with the National Society of Masters of Dancing to the extent of at least being vice-president. Kopp cites him in several places as the source for dances, giving Chicago as his location. Perhaps a Chicago newspaper might have something in their archives?

I googled and found a mention of him in the Chicago Examiner 7/10/17, so maybe they have an image as well.
