DescriptionBust Cabinet Image of The Apache Kid, circa 1890s. The Apache Kid was an Apache scout and outlaw, active in the US Southwest in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1883 the Kid accompanied General Crook in his expedition to the Sierra Madre and was probably also in Crook's 1886 campaign against Geronimo in Mexico. In May 1887, the Kid shot another Apache during a bout of drinking, and, feeling remorseful about it, eventually turned himself in. He was put on trial and sent briefly to Alcatraz, for intent to murder. There then occurred a torturous series of events concerning judicial jurisdiction and administrative matters, resulting in another Arizona trial for The Kid. While being transported to the Yuma prison, the twice-convicted Kid and several other convicted Apaches overpowered the sheriff and escaped. Although all of his companions were later captured or killed, the Kid was never again apprehended, but for the next two decades many crimes were attributed to him. This bust image features The Kid, dressed in White Man's clothing and wearing a serious expression, staring intently into the camera lens. Lightly soiled; small area of abraded albumen affects The Kid's upper lip. Affixed to the scallop- and gilt-edged photo mount of George Addison, a photographer located at Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory, from 1890 to 1895. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
