There is a picture of Boudinot in In Memoria: Elias Cornelius Boudinot (Chicago: Rand McNally, c. 1890), frontispiece. The best biography of him is James W. Parins. Parins has done by far the most research and tries, in a limited fashion, to rehabilitate Boudinot by contextualizing him.

James W. Parins, Elias Cornelius Boudinot: A Life on the Cherokee Border (Lincoln: Univ. of Nebraska Press, 2006), for contextualization see 1-2.
