    Scope and Content of Collection

    A collection of photographs focusing on Apache and Pueblo Indians and the pueblos of Isleta, Jemez, Taos, Zuni (and dancers), Laguna, and Walpi, ca. 1880s-1890s. There are also early views of Albuquerque and Santa Fe in New Mexico, and Florence and Flagstaff in Arizona; unidentified towns; the Riordan Mansion; Casa Grande ruins (Arizona); cliff-dwellings; and a halfway rest station between Casa Grande and Florence. Mohave, Navajo, Maricopa, Moqui (Hopi), and Pima Indians are also represented. There are some views of digs and human remains unearthed by the Hemenway Southwestern Archaeological Expedition. Includes some photographs by Charles F. Lummis, Isaiah W. Taber, W. Calvin Brown, and a photographer called “Sanders.”
    Images of the Indians include studio portraits and candid field photographs, in particular, Moqui (Hopi) and Zuni Indian dances as well as groups of men on horseback. Other people pictured are Frank Granger Logan, a philanthropist who funded many archaeological expeditions to the Southwest, and D.B. Robinson, an Arizona businessman. Also included is an unidentified newspaper clipping that reports on the Hemenway Southwestern Archaeological Expedition. Research has shown this article to have been published January 1888. Several photos are marked “Sellers” on the reverse, but it is unclear who this refers to. Photographs that have “Sellers” written on their versos are grouped in Folder 5. Copy negatives have been made for photographs (8), (12), (45), (149), and (162).

    Arrangement

    The photographs are arranged in their original order; therefore some subjects appear throughout the collection.
