    The man is probably Francis B. Sayre (Wikipedia), whom she married in 1913. There's a fragment of his name backwards at the bottom of his picture.

    For heaven's sake, LOC -- Two Question Marks! Y'all call yourself the Library of Congress, and you don't know that President Woodrow Wilson's elder daughter was named Jessie Woodrow??

    And if she had been born male, she would have been Woodrow Wilson, Jr.

    She and Francis Bowes Sayre were wed on November 25, 1913.

    A couple of Bain/LOC photos of Sayre were posted here a week or two ago:

    Logista and Wystan: Thanks identifying Sayre. We'll include it next time we update the source data.

    The lighting in the picture of the woman is gorgeous. She looks so angelic and happy looking tenderly at the flowers.

    Most people today do not even know Wilson was a Democrat, LOL
