    APPEAHTONE, KIOWA CHIEF, AND FAMILY. Large, handsome cabinet image produced by William Irwin of Chickasha, Indian Territory, circa 1899. Wearing a three-piece suit and cravat, Appeahtone sits with his hands in his lap, staring slightly to the left with a questioning look on his face. His daughter stands to his right wrapped in a floral blanket; his wife stands behind him, with a yawning infant in a papoose carrier. The image measures 3¾" x 5½" and is affixed to Irwin's 5¼" x 7¼" imprinted mount. On verso in an unknown hand: "Appeahtone & Family, chief of the Kiowa." Although the mat board shows some wear and age toning along the edges, the image is in excellent condition.

    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.
