Many of the photographs were probably made in Beach's studio, but Geronimo was probably photographed at the Exposition's "Indian Village."
Biographical/Historical note:
Howard Dwight Beach (1867-1954) was a painter, photographer, and inventor in Buffalo, New York. Born in New Britain, Connecticut, he moved to Buffalo in 1884 to apprentice with photographer Andrew Simson, described as "Buffalo's oldest photographer." In 1896, Beach partnered with Simson to form the Simson & Beach photographic studio. Simson became the accredited photographer for the Pan-American Exposition in 1901. During the exposition, Beach photographed the American Indians that participated in the "Indian Congress," a "living exhibit" of various American Indian tribes on the exposition's Midway.
