According to the Johan Hagemeyer business records (BANC MSS C-G 272), Shawl sat for Hagemeyer in the photographer's studio
in 1929 and 1944. Notations on portraits of Hagemeyer taken at these times (found in BANC PIC 1964.063--PIC) suggest that
Shawl may have photographed Hagemeyer during these visits.
