    Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, and their Dog Dave: Three Personal Photographs, Ohio, circa 1920s. This lot has three great family photographs of Annie, Frank, & Dave (their famous dog) probably at the family home in Ohio. They are both very aged in these photographs, two photographs 5.25" x 3.50" sitting on the porch with Dave. The other Annie posing with her gun 5" x 7".

    In 1924, she started performing again, but her health did not last long. By 1925, she was very frail and in failing health. Annie and Frank moved back to Ohio to Annie's hometown near the family, where she wrote her memoirs.

    Condition: Three photographs have tape remnants on verso, small one has tear.

    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.
