John Quincy Adams, Sixth President of the United States (1767-1848)

This half-length portrait of a seated Adams, holding a small book in his left hand, is a hand-colored lithograph. It was engraved and published by E. B. & E. C. Kellogg and D. Needham around the time of Adams' death in 1848. He was the first son of a president to attain the office of president. He also served as secretary of state under James Monroe, becoming the chief architect of the Monroe Doctrine. Adams was serving in the House of Representatives at the time of his death, and is the only ex-president ever to do so. He served in Congress for seventeen years, earning the nickname "Old Man Eloquent."
