To me, it kind of looks like Carron, but nothing shows up when i searched for that either.

I wonder if the second r is an e. Also, I believe the last name starts with an I.

Its uncanny how much it looks like a slightly rushed Connie Mack signature!

Not that a potentially 100 year old company name may have helped with the ID now days, but too bad a little more of the letter it was attached to was not present/readable. I thought Carron as well.

.

I was thinking middle initial J. which then leads into last name beginning with letter M.

I have spent far too much time on this but I cannot help it. Ive gone as far as searching for last names with a W (its possible the last name starts with a W like the one in Waite Hoyt when looking at his signature). Im drawing a blank. This came in a group of authors, politicians,etc. Any idea what other professions would be included in etc?

I'm certain you've done this, but anything on the back of the photo?

The item is not mine. It was posted in a Facebook autograph group and i was puzzled. I figured someone must know who this guy is. I have no other info unfortunately.

A hint might be the in the message, "Land and Lot Company" I found a stock certificate photo online for the Canby Land and Lot Company. Maybe he's an officer of the company.

Submitted for your consideration . . .

Carroll Wright

Fits the politician category.

First name signature has similarities. Last name not as much.

Image here seems similar although at a different age. Ears the same, maybe?

The photo looks a bit like him, but the signature not so much. Plus he was a state and government official, college professor and president. No mention of business interests in his bio. The letter is on ebay.
