The “New York Red Book” is an annual publication containing information about the state government of New York. Of particular interest is that it includes biographies and photos (or drawings) of all state senators and assemblymen, and biographies of some other state officials. The University at Buffalo libraries have copies for most of the years from 1896 through 2009. I will provide scans of both the bio and picture, if available.
Some earlier Red Books are available online – check Google Books (one example is linked below).
