    Scope and Content of Collection

    Artificial collection of prints, negatives, and albums. Covers social life and customs of native peoples primarily in California and the Southwest, but also the northwest (Spokane, Washington from 1891-1905) and the Dakota Territory. Photographic types include cabinet cards, cynotypes, glass plates and stereoviews. Most albums are annotated; some albums appear to have been compiled by workers at Indian schools (i.e. Talklai Indian School, Arizona). A large portion of the collection are negatives. 1886-1969, undated.
