Usher Lloyd Burdick was a U.S. Representative from North Dakota from 1907 to 1911, he was Lieutenant Governor of N.D. from 1909 to 1913, and served as assistant U.S. district attorney for N.D. from 1929 to 1932. He was then elected as a Republican to the 74th Congress and served from 1935 to 1945, and again from 1949-1959. His son Quentin probably donated this photograph but it is unclear.
