Given how prominent an individual D. H. Church was in the history of American watchmaking, considering his numerous important patents and his management role at the AWWCo, I expected an image or two of him to pop up immediately with my first Internet search. But nope, nada. Has anyone here ever seen a picture of the man?

I'm pretty sure that there's a picture of him in the Waltham history book published around 1910. I know this is all very vague, sorry. I owned a copy of the book many years ago but sold it.

Edit: This might be the book: Watches by Automatic Machinery at Waltham by EA Marsh. Reprints are available.

Thank you, Greg! I'll see if I can buy a copy.

On second thought, this might be the book: /Pioneer-History-American-Waltham-Watch-Company. I'm sure that someone like Tom McIntyre has a copy that they can check to see if Church is pictured therein.

Thanks, Greg. That book is available as well, and I know it has pix of Dennison and Marsh, but I don't know if it covers Duane H. Church's time. I'll wait to hear what other knowledgeable site participants, perhaps Tom if he chooses to join the conversation, can tell me.
