Here's my entry... This is the small version of the picture... I have a larger full size oval framed version that's been slightly colorized...

This one's going to require Rick's keen eye. I can get only as far as a young soldier.

Looks like an early 20th West point cadet or maybe a military school.At first I thought marine corp for the high collar. however the button insignias look army. Once again not much to go on.

Default darts

DX:

I noticed the darts in the shirt, the high color, the grey tone of the uniform and the buttons. I thought the darts would not be in a tunic of a regular officer or military school cadet, hence I spectulated West Point.
