Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made from drawings by Tichkematse. The drawings document an 1887 hunting trip made by Colonel Bliss of Fort Supply and Major John Dunlop, a visitor to the fort from Washington DC. Most of the figures depicted in the drawings are Cheyenne men who were enlisted as United States Army scouts; many are identified.
Biographical/Historical note:
Tichkematse (1857-1932, also known as Squint Eyes) was a Cheyenne artist, Smithsonian Institution employee, and Army scout. From 1875-1878, he was among a group of Plains Indians held as prisoners of war at Fort Marion in Saint Augustine, Florida. While at Fort Marion, he learned to read, write and speak English. Upon release he attended the Hampton Institute for about a year before starting employment at the Smithsonian in 1879. As a Smithsonian employee, he prepared bird and mammal specimens for study and display and produced drawings illustrating his life on the Plains. Tichkematse returned to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Reservation in 1880, but continued to collect bird and mammal specimens as well as Cheyenne craftswork for the Smithsonian. In 1885, he enlisted as a scout for the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Supply.

Date:
1955-1960, 1965-1988
Descriptive Entry:
The Torch, a newspaper for Smithsonian Institution employees, was first published in 1955 by the Office of Information and later by its successor, the Office of Public Affairs. The publication appeared somewhat sporadically until 1960, when it stopped, to resume in 1965. Since that time, it has appeared monthly in a larger format. Occasional special issues mark events such as the opening of a major museum or a change in the administration of the Institution.

Articles in The Torch concern exhibitions, events, seasonal happenings, administrative changes, job moves, retirements, marriages, births, and deaths. Also included are features on individual staff members, concerning interesting aspects of their jobs, sports, or hobbies.

These records consist of two copies (when available) of each issue of The Torch. Issues since roughly 1972 also include prints of some of the photographs for that issue. Not every photograph is included-only those transferred with the records. In some instances, there is a notation that a photograph was returned to its owner. In others, there is no explanation.

Many of the images in this collection are available online.
