A composite portrait showing the five officers of the Photographers Association of America at the time of the 1902 Buffalo convention is reproduced as a photogravure plate in the program. Each individual portrait includes a facsimile autograph of each gentleman. Ironically, no photographer credit appears for this photograph, and it is most possible all were taken by different people (possibly even by the photographers themselves) and sent to John Andrew & Son in order to make the plate.

On the following page of the program each of the men are listed as they appear, top to bottom, in the photographic plate-listed by their officer title as well as address.  They are:

George M. Edmondson, President, 510 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio.
J.G. Nussbaumer, First Vice-President, 500 Main Street, Buffalo, N.Y.
H.S. Klein, Second Vice-President, 79 Wisconsin Street, Milwaukee, Wis.
F.R. Barrows, Treasurer, 1873 Dorchester Avenue, Boston, Mass.
C.R. Reeves, Secretary, 819 Meridian Street, Anderson, Ind.

The president of the the PAA in 1902 was George Mountain Edmondson:  (1866-1948)
