From innate modesty he adopted the signature of "Justice." We recollect reading his criticism on the daguerreotypes at the Crystal Palace, which at that time created considerable excitement among the artists. He has also written some excellent sketches under the titles of "Life in a Daguerrean Gallery," "The Arkansas Traveller," "Daguerreotyping in the Backwoods," "The Elevation and Degradation of the Arts," and many articles, some intended for amusement, and some of a useful character. His collection of colored photographs, many of them of large size and very valuable, one of which is of G. V.

His collection of celebrated persons is unequalled; few men who have figured in public life for the last fifteen years are unrepresented. To the city of St. Louis Fitzgibbon's fine art galleries are reckoned among the permanent institutions of the city, and strangers from abroad consider it a matter of duty to pay them a visit, for the purpose of examining the varied treasures which are exhibited on the walls.

We will also note that a daguerreotype of Fitzgibbon is in the Harvard Theater Collection and may be viewed online.
