    Pair of Cabinet Photographs of Yuma and Ute Native Women, Circa 1890s. Superb images of Native American women including "No 83 Ute Indian Girl from Pojuaque [sic].", 5" x 8", with a D. B. Chase, Photographer, Santa Fe studio imprint. Pojoaque Pueblo is located just to the north of Santa Fe and is home to Pueblo Indians who speak the Tewa language. It is likely the photographer has misidentified the young girl as a Ute and she is in reality a member of the Pojoaque Pueblo. The image, shot in rather soft focus, makes an excellent study of her no-doubt colorful clothing. On the reverse of the image there is an advertising label for the Denver & Rio Grand Rail Road. The second image captioned "230 Squaws of Yuma Indians." measures 5.25" x 8.5" and has a Pierce & McConnell, 515 North Main St. Los Angeles studio imprint. The mother and presumably her daughter are posed in the studio wearing a curious mix of native and contemporary clothing and accessories. Both of these amazing images are 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.
