Tuesday, October 5 was Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau's birthday! We love this photograph of Dr. Trudeau, Mrs. Trudeau, and their daughter Charlotte "Chatte" Trudeau with friends at a "bonnet party" that was recently donated to our collection. Mrs. Trudeau is seated at far left, Dr. Trudeau is in the middle of the back row with his face hidden by a hat, and Chatte is standing at his left. Maybe next year we'll throw our own bonnet party to celebrate Dr. Trudeau's birthday! It looks like a great time! Happy 173rd birthday, Dr. Trudeau!
