Scope and Contents note:
Unbound album pages (labeled A through Q) with photographs documenting the people and culture of the Pocatello-Fort Hall area, including American Indians (particularly Shoshone-Bannock tribes), agency employees, and missionaries. Included are images of encampments, Sun Dance ceremonies, the Fort Hall Agency, Indian schools and churches, the Run for Fort Hall Lands on June 17, 1902, the War Bonnett Roundup at Idaho Falls, Shoshone Falls and other natural features and landscapes, a large number of street and aerial views of Pocatello, A. L. Cook's drug store in Pocatello, and members of the Cook family. In addition, there are photographs of Nez Perce, Hopi, San Juan, and Navaho Indians, and one image of the Lapps Indians at Port Townsend, Washington. A large number of the photographs were made by Benedicte Wrensted.

The albums were compiled by Robert Leonard, Eugene O. Leonard's son, who also made copy prints of many of the photographs and negatives. They include flyers, newspapers, envelopes, and other scraps collected by Leonard.
Biographical/Historical note:
Eugene O. Leonard (1884-1964) moved to Pocatello, Idaho, in 1893 to live with his aunt, the widow of A. L. Cook and owner of the Cook building and drugstore. Leonard attended Weiser College and Academy (now College of Idaho), Whitman College, and Northwestern University. He acquired degrees in phamacy and pharmaceutical chemistry from Northwestern University, and a degree in assaying studies from the Chicago College of Chemistry. After graduation from the College in 1908, Leonard returned to Pocatello to manage the Cook Drug Store until 1918. He worked as Pocatello City Chemist and set up the College of Pharmacy at Idaho State College, where he also taught and served as dean (1918-1954). In the 1930s, Leonard obtained a MS and PhD from Utah State University. Possibly encouraged by his collector aunt, Leonard established a collection of Indian material culture objects and documentations, including artifacts and these photograhs, based on his interest in the Shoshoni and Bannock Indians at nearby Fort Hall.

Biographical/Historical note:
Charles Roscoe Savage (1832-1909) was an English-born photographer in Salt Lake City, Utah. He immigrated to the United States around 1856, shortly after becoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After spending time on assignment for the church in Nebraska, he settled in Salt Lake City in 1860 and went into partnership with Marsena Cannon, a daguerreotype photographer and studio owner. When Cannon left Salt Lake City in 1862, Savage partnered with George Martin Ottinger under the name Savage & Ottinger. When that partnership dissolved in 1870, Savage opened the Pioneer Art Gallery, which he renamed Art Bazaar in 1875. Starting in May 1869, Savage also became a photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad, a project that continued almost to his death. Most of Savage's negatives were destroyed when the Art Bazaar burned, first in 1883 and again after his death in 1911.
