5. The Late Anson Burlingame
This portrait accompanied Burlingame's obituary in Harper's Weekly, March 12, 1870. The obituary begins, “We give on this page the portrait of Mr. Anson Burlingame, Chinese Envoy to the United States and European Powers, who died at St. Petersburg, Russia, on the 23rd of February, after an illness of only four days...” Burlingame was appointed minister to the Qing Empire by Abraham Lincoln in 1861. Upon his retirement, the Chinese government appointed him envoy extraordinaire and minister plenipotentiary to lead a diplomatic mission from China to the United States and other European powers in 1868.
