This photograph of Glenn Seaborg appears in my Photographic Periodic Table Poster representing seaborgium, which is named after him. This highly unstable element can't reasonably be photographed, and a picture of its namesake seemed like a reasonable alternative. The sample photograph includes text exactly as it appears in the poster, which you are encouraged to buy a copy of.
This photo is courtesy the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, used with permission. Interesting note for collectors of trivia: Of all the photographs of people in my poster, this is the only one in color, because he was the only person ever to have had an element named after him while he was still alive. It seemed like a nice symbolic thing to do.
