    BEAUTIFUL HAND-TINTED CABINET CARD OF RUNNING DEER BY HAYNES. Known for his exceptional images of Yellowstone and his superb Indian portraits, F. Jay Hanes traveled extensively and continuously between St. Paul and Yellowstone in his Palace Studio Car, a renovated Pullman railroad car, from which he operated his travelling studio (with additional landlocked studios in both St. Paul and Fargo). Here, Haynes has captured the likeness of Running Deer, a famous Oneida warrior during the French and Indian War. This vibrantly hand-tinted bust cabinet image (approximately 3¾" x 5½") shows Running Deer in profile, in all his finery. He wears bead and feather decorations in his hair, and his bangs have been pomaded to stand up. He wears a quill breast plate, a decorative sash, necklaces, and several earrings in his ears. In superb condition, this Haynes cabinet is virtually brand new, without a blemish on the photo or the photographer's mount (approximately 4¼" x 6½"). On verso, Haynes' list of "Colored Cabinets of Noted Indians."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
