Seyl, Susan; The Art Perfected, Portraiture From The Cronise Studio, Portland; Oregon Historical Society 1980. pg. 9 “In 1893 the Cronises hired a young photographer, Howard D. Trover to work in the studio, replacing a Miss Cravens who had worked with Anna for a short time. Howard and Anna were married in December of that same year… …Anna and Howard’s Cronise Photo Studio, located in the Eldridge Building at Commercial and Chemeketa, was renamed the Trover-Cronise Photo Studio after 1907 to avoid confusion.”
