Interesting 1943 photo of Sommer. In between being a hero of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire and Dean of the NYU Law School, he was also a political mover & shaker. There are cast medallions of him mounted on Santa Barbara's Franceschi House and Miami Beach's Casa Casuarina [currently best known as the "Versace Mansion"].
