Following imprisonment at Fort Marion Florida, Humming Bird was sent to Oklahoma Territory, where this photo was taken. Printed on negative: "Humming Bird's Camp. Kiowa's." Image is affixed to Croft's gilt and scallop-edged photo mount which bears Croft's gilt "Oklahoma City, O.T." imprint.

    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.
