The article is accompanied by a drawing of Henry Hudson that was captioned, "An illustration thought to be that of English explorer Henry Hudson."
However, as Thomas Janvier noted in Henry Hudson: A Brief Statement of His Aims and Achievements:
“No portrait of Hudson is known to be in existence. What has passed with the uncritical for his portrait — a dapper-looking man wearing a ruffed collar — frequently has been, and continues to be, reproduced. Who that man was is unknown. That he was not Hudson is certain.”
Which begs the question: Who is that man in the ruffed collar?
