Biography

In the summer of 1976, before enrolling as a student at San Joaquin Delta Community College (Stockton, Calif.), Elizabeth Ceniceros served as a YMCA worker at White Horse Sioux Reservation, S.D. There she kept a journal and audiotaped five interviews with Dakota Sioux. [Ms2.C395]
Joseph G. Doty was an agent for the American Turquoise Co. of NY (1897-1900). In the course of buying trips in Kingman (Ariz.) and Los Cerrillos (N.M.) Doty sent the nine letters in this collection to his young daughters Hazel and Dorothy in Wyoming, N.J.. The letters include descriptions of the terrain around the Aztec Turquoise Mine near Kingman and of a Wallapai Indian work crew there. [Ms2.D725]
Margaret Sinclair was a collector of Indian artifacts. She received both letters in this collection in conjunction with the purchase of a pair of Paiute Indian gloves (1940). One of the letters, from a dealer in Ute Indian leather goods, tells Sinclair how her gloves were made. The other letter, from the husband of the woman who made Sinclair's gloves, is a thank-you note for the purchase. [Ms2.S616]
Rev. Francis Stanley was a historian and author of numerous books on Texas and New Mexico history, including: The Jicarillo Apaches of New Mexico (1967). This collection consists of eight letters from Stanley to New Jersey book dealer, William Kelleher, regarding Stanley's research on Pie Grande (Big Foot), a Texas Indian legend. [Ms2.S787]
