Identity:

D. W. Howland was an autograph collector.

Life:

Howland was living at a reputable Boston address in 1897. Whistler was not impressed by his terse request for a signature, and presumably never sent one.

However, he may have been related to Mary Bryant Howland, whose autograph collection was given to the Houghton Library, Harvard University. It dates from 1877-1893.
