Abstract:

Mounted albumen prints and stereographs of western Indians and scenes, ca. 1865-1881, taken mainly by Alexander Gardner, William H. Jackson, and William S. Soule. Also three large prints of Mexican War military scenes (Vera Cruz, Monterey, Calif., and Corpus Christi, Tex.).

Gardner images include 90 large mounted prints, "Scenes in the Indian Country," and 98 stereographs, mainly documenting Fort Laramie Indian Peace Commission meetings with the Arapaho, Sioux, Cheyenne, and Crow tribes. Included are Indian camp scenes and portraits, and views of the fort, its surroundings, and the negotiations. There are also several Kansas scenes taken by Gardner in 1867. There are 27 Wyoming images, "Picturesque Views of Rocky Mountain Scenery," taken by Jackson in 1870 when he accompanied Hayden's Geological Survey of the Territories. The 22 Soule photoprints are mainly portraits of Arapaho, Comanche, and Kiowa chiefs, probably taken at Fort Sill, Okla., 1869-1874. There are also stereographs by A.A. Hart, C.R. Savage, C.W. Carter, H.L. Bingham, D.F. Mitchell, and J.B. Silvis, and large format prints by H.A. Doerr, containing views of Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroad routes, military posts in Texas and Wyoming, Sacramento, Calif., Prescott, Ariz., San Antonio, Tex., and the Mormon Tabernacle. In addition there are portraits of Gen. Augur, Nez Percé Chief Joseph, and Gen. Gibbons, and two views of the Naval Academy and the National Asylum for Disabled Veterans.
