The Brown Brothers is the nation's oldest stock photo agency, established in New York in 1904. Founded by brothers Arthur and Charles Brown, they eventually had a staff of twelve photographers covering all subjects. When former President Theodore Roosevelt announced in 1912 that he would again run for president, Arthur Brown sent his ace photographer, Charles Duprez, to Roosevelt's home in Oyster Bay, Long Island. Spontaneously, Duprez photographed Teddy Roosevelt's smile, the first photograph from which a political caricature was created. This shot became the most famous ever taken of a U.S. president, and is considered by many experts the most valuable photograph ever.
