Portraits of "Famous People" from Library of Congress

I'm trying to track down images of key historical figures from U.S. history and I just found this site from the Library of Congress which lists peoples across the different collections.
http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/list/235_poa.html

But I have to be honest here and admit that one of the best tools I've found recently is Wikipedia (which does track sources of most uploaded photos). Ironically many of them ARE from the Library of Congress, but sometimes using Wikipedia is actually slightly more efficient than trying to navigate the LOC.
