I found this lovely photograph along with a number of other keepsakes  in a neighborhood antiques store here in Fort Worth, Texas. There were no names written on the picture's back, but the photographer was RODGERS of Rockport, Indiana. I purchased some old postcards and a 1901 commencement program at the same time, and they appear to have all been saved by the same person.

I also found some wonderful postcards from the same period, and I believe they belonged to the same person who had kept this graduation program. You can see them in the Vintage Indiana Postcards section. 

You can see the 1901 commencement program here.
