Vice-admiral Harry Huse USA. see in Wikipedia

This portrait was not included in the 1922 Crété book. The original portrait in the Museum of the legion of honour in Paris was labelled "Admiral Gleaves USA". This was a mis-identification and it is now know to be Vice-admiral Harry Huse. Both were in Paris at the same time and the artist died soon after the portrait was done. There may have been uncertainty about who it was and it was therefore omitted from the book. Confirmation has come via the artist's diary and other papers.
