    Description

    William Henry Jackson, Photographer: Four Albumen Prints of Pawnee Natives, Circa 1870-1879. From Department of the Interior. United States Geological Survey of the Territories. F. V. Hayden, U.S. Geologist. Miscellaneous Publications-No. 9. Descriptive Catalogue of The Photographs of the North American Indian by, W. H. Jackson, Photographer of the Survey. Washington: Government Print Office, 1877. Each portrait measures approximately 3.75" x 5" and they are mounted on heavy paper mat, 11" x 14", with a printed decorative gilt border and captioned in gilt: "Dept. of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey of the Territories, Prof. F. V. Hayden in charge." and "W. H. Jackson, Photo." The images include an unnamed young Pawnee brave (588) wearing a bear-claw necklace and peace medal; Fox (Ke-Wouk), a Pawnee brave (582); Particular as to Time of Day (Kuhn-sa-coo-re-culla-ha), a Pawnee brave (576) draped in buffalo fur and wearing a fur hat; and "Pawnee papooses" (572), Pawnee children in traditional garb, standing with an elder dressed in a military uniform. There is some question as to whether or not Jackson made all the Indian photographs in the collection from Hayden's survey, including those captioned "W.H. Jackson Photo." or was merely was in charge of project. Nevertheless, these albumen prints remain an impressive record of the Native American people of the American West. These images remain clear and sharp, with some moderate toning to the outside borders and slight browning to the backing mat, else they are in very good condition.
