|Notes||Parker Watkins Hardin (1841-1920) was an Adair County lawyer. A Democrat, he was elected KY's attorney general in 1879, 1883, 1887, and 1891. He unsuccessfully sought the nomination for governor in 1891 and 1899, and as the Democratic gubernatorial candidate lost the election in 1895. Kentuckians admired Hardin's oratory, which the Louisville Courier-Journal called "rabble-rousing magic." Between state jobs he practised law in Harrodsburg. The file indicates that the painting was restored in October 1973. PORTRAITURE IN THE KHS, PP. 54-55.|
