    Description

    H.P. Marble Image of Menomonee Reservation Indians, circa 1915. Although he once served as Mayor of Las Vegas and spent many years as an Indian Agent (1911-1926), Harmon Percy Marble is probably best known for his extensive photographic documentation of Native Americas. As an Indian Agent, Marble was assigned to many reservations in the Plains and Southwest areas, where he recorded the clothing and customs of Navajo, Menominee, and Sioux Indians. Here, a group of eighteen Menomonee men, women, and children pose for Marble on the reservation, wearing their finest clothes and jewelry. Behind them, a group of spectators is seated on a grandstand, and men watch from above in a US flag-decked tower. Image measures 7" x 5". From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Very fine.

    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.
