Summary:
This collection contains 16 gelatin silver photographs shot by photographer David Grant Noble that depict Mohawk ironworkers constructing a building in New York City, 1970-1971.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains 16 gelatin silver prints shot by photographer David Grant Noble from 1970-1971. The photographs depict Mohawk ironworkers at a construction site at Park Avenue and 53rd Street in New York City. These action shots depict the men at work many stories above street level. Walter Jay Goodleaf, Arnold Goodleaf, Roger Horne, Jay Jacobs, and Sparky Rice are among the Mohawk ironworkers depicted in the images.

According to Noble, the ironworkers were from the Kahnawake Reserve on the St. Lawrence River near Montreal, Canada. During the construction project, the men lived in the North Gawanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, but would drive home to Kahnawake on the weekends.

All the photographs are signed by the photographer.
Arrangement:
The photographs are arranged in 4 folders.
Biographical / Historical:
David Grant Noble is a professional photographer, author, and editor living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. After attending Yale University, Noble served in the U.S. Army in 1962 where he began his photography career.

In 1970, Noble was shooting street photography when he befriended Mohawk ironworkers constructing a building at Park Avenue and 53rd Street in New York City. They invited him to document their work including photographing them many stories above street level.

From 1971-1989, Noble worked at the School for Advanced Research (SAR) in Santa Fe where he photographed and studied American southwest archaeological ruins, cliff dwellings, rock art, and landscapes. His books include Ancient Ruins of the Southwest: an Archaeological Guide, Search of Chaco: New Approaches to an Archaeological Enigma, and In the Places of the Spirits.

Noble's photographs are in the collections of numerous public institutions including Yale University's Beinecke Library, Museum of New Mexico, and New York City Public Library. He is also the recipient of the 2011 Emil Haury Award from the Western National Parks Association and the 2003 Victor Stoner Award from the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society.
Provenance:
The photographs in this collection were a Museum purchase and gift of David Grant Noble.
