My Kafkaesque Photo (Or Maybe Not)

The other photo I got today (the first one is here) is the portrait of the guy on the left. On the right is Franz Kafka, the famous author. I was thinking my guy looked sort of like Kafka, but maybe not. Kafka's face looks a little wider.

I don't usually buy portraits like this, since they're usually kind of boring, but there was something odd about the guy's right eye. The white at the bottom eyelid looks like it was a photographer's touch-up, for whatever reason. At first it looked like the eye was too big compared to the other one.

Here he is with part of the cardboard frame. The photo was taken by the Hodge Studio of Topeka, Kansas. If anyone knows who he was, you can let me know in the comments. Thank you.
