The first four cards on the left hand side are all to do with Embassy officials re Tunisia! I'm certain there is a story there, don't you think? From the top left down, they are:
1. Le Chev. Antoine Conti, / Secrétaire, Interprète de l'Ambassade / Tunisienne.
2. Le Lieutenant Colonel Ramiro Gaeta, / Attaché à 'Ambassade / Tunisienne.
3. Le Général Otman Hashem, Envoyé Extraordinaire de S. A. / le Bey de Tunis.
4. Amos Perry / Consul Général / des Etats Unis d'Amérique à Tunis.
Update: A number of individuals met with this group and President Johnson; possibly James M. Terwilliger, my 2nd great-grandfather... and he must have saved the cards. Thanks to Albert Riezebos for the links and details.
Next, the three cards set on an angle, bottom left:
5. Mr. DeWitt Van Buskirk - a member of the Hudson Historical Society Link takes you to a 32 page article he read at a meeting
6. Coleman Gray / Dentist [handwritten - left-handed, perhaps?]
7. Florence L. Telford
The cards set at an angle across from top left centre to bottom right:

And there you have it, another page completed more or less, in the Album. These cards range from friends and colleagues, to a variety of stores' owners, to theatre. Another mish-mash of a page.
If you have more information about any of these people, or would like more details (or a photo of a specific card), contact me via calewis at telus dot net, or in the Comments below.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm planning on much more regular posts for the Album in this third year!
