According to Diane Vogt-O'Connor, Guide to Photographic Collections at the Smithsonian Institution, Vol. I, p. 123, the "collection was assembled by an anonymous donor to document the work of Chester O. Dale, a civil engineer. Dale was with the Braden Copper Company Hydraulic Power Development at Pangal, India," 1908-1920: but Pangal is in Chile, not India.
