"Sarony Studio bore one of the resonant names on Broadway, its founder, Napoleon Sarony, having been the greatest theatrical photographer of the 19th century. Shortly before his death in 1896, Napoleon Sarony sold the studio to the Burrow family with the stipulation that his son, Otto, be kept on as a salaried employee. Otto, before his death in 1903, complicated matters by selling his name to the photographic titan Col. Theodore Marceau, who owned a chain of studios spanning the country." © David S. Shields

"The chief photographer for Sarony from late 1913 to 1918 was Frank E. Geisler [...]. My increasing suspicion is that from 1915 to 1917 ACJ was working for Ira Hill." David S. Shields
