The Boston Photographer Who Photographed Underage Women Nude
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
In February 1914 a trial opened in Newton, Massachusetts dealing with risque photographs taken by artist Henry Orne Rider. As a photographer he took pictures of high school girls at his studio. On one occasion he was sued by William A. Graham of nearby Waltham. The father demanded $10,000 for nude studies Rider had taken of his daughter Helen. Local police added charges of corrupting youth.
