Emily Dickinson (left). Scholars at Amherst College in Mass. believe a collector found just the second known photo of Emily Dickinson. The daguerreotype, c.1859, when she was around 30, shows her sitting next to a friend, Kate Scott Turner. The photo contradicts a misperception that she never left her house, when in fact she was quite social in her younger years. It also shows a strikingly different image from the only existing photo of Dickinson as a frail, teen girl.
