    Scope and Content

    The photographs are arranged by series, according to Jackson's Descriptive Catalogue of the Photographs of the United States Geological Survey of the Territories for the Years 1869 to 1873 (United States. Geological Survey of the Territories. Misc. Publication No. 5. Washington, 1874). Numbers 23 through 33 of this set are not to be found in this catalog, but are apparently from an expedition of 1874. See Clarence S. Jackson's Picture Maker of the Old West (New York, 1947) for details of this trip. Some of the prints in this set lack either the photographer's number or description, which have been supplied from the catalog.
    The originals are mounted on 11x14 boards and shelved as 1964.053--AX. These are RESTRICTED.
