Born February 4, 1902, the question arises, when was this tintype made? It is excellent quality, likely made in an urban studio, perhaps in Washington, DC . (His father was a member of the House of Representatives.) The boy seems to me, and to a few others, to be around 12-14 years old which would mean that this tintype was made in or near 1915, around 12 years before his historic flight to Paris.
