Herbert Duckworth
Possibly by Oscar G. Rejlander (1813-1875)

Leslie Stephen knew Herbert Duckworth (1833-1870) when they both were at Cambridge. Stephen described him in his memoirs: Herbert Duckworth was “the kind of man who might be expected to settle down as a thorough country gentleman... simple, straight forward and manly... a singularly modest and sweet-tempered man.” Stephen characterized himself at this time as “a person of intellectual claims, but... scandalously slovenly in dress and altogether wanting in the true social polish.”
