    Collection Scope and Content Summary

    The subjects in these twenty-one glass lantern slides are primarily Native Americans (PueblO people and Navajos) in Arizona and New Mexico. The views are chiefly of Acoma, Laguna, and Santa Clara Pueblos, the Navajo reservation in Arizona, Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and El Tovar Lodge and Hopi House at the Grand Canyon, Arizona. Scenes 3f the Navajos postdate their "Long Walk" and detention at "Bosque Redondo," near Fort Sumner, New Mexico (1863-1868).
    Some of the mats on the slides bear, variously, the names of F.H. Maude, Los Angeles, Riley Optical Instrument Company, New York, and Putnam and Valentine; one slide appears to be attributed to the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe (AT & SF) Railroad. The slides are in good condition and the majority are hand-colored, with clear images. Titles written on the slides are shown in the index to the collection in quotation marks.
    Slides 194/14 and 15 can be identified in Rousel, Robert, Jr., History of the Navajo, from 1860 to 1910 (Navajo Curriculum Center, Rough Rock, Star Route 1, Navajo Nation, Arizona, 86503, 1980) as "Juanita, Wife of War Chief Manuelito" on page 152 (Smithsonian photograph # 2391), but at a later age than the woman shown in Rouse! . A photograph of War Chief Manuelito is also shown on page 173 in Rousel's book. Slide 194/18 is a duplicate of a photograph contained in Rousel, page 94 (Smithsonian photograph # 2438).
