Passport Photo of Vaishno Das Bagai
Passport photo of Vaishno Das Bagai. It is stamped by the Dept. State and signed "V.D. Bagai." It is understood that Bagai applied for a US passport in 1928 but was denied, due to nullification of his naturalization after the United States v. Bhagat Singh Thind Supreme Court decision. This photo may have been part of that passport application.
