Figure 4: Augustus Addison Gould, 1805-1866.

The attribution of Figure 4 to Augustus Addison Gould is indisputable, and his presence is the strongest validation that the daguerreotype is a reenactment. He does not appear in Ether Dome Daguerreotypes-Nos. 2-5. Gould provided Morton with accommodations while he was developing his glass globe apparatus, and is credited with the design and engineering of the valve.
