Old Man Whately

Another vintage photograph, this time of "Old Man Whately" from "The Dunwich Horror". Generically, this is the kind of picture I call a "Zedidiah"- the older, bearded, slightly-touched-in-the-head gentleman that pops up regularly in horror literature and films. Look into those eyes and you can tell he's seen things that ain't rightfully meant to be seen.

Just click through for the full-sized version.

That could be him! I was just reading the story yesterday and thinking about how the characters looked, and hoping to get some new ideas.
