This series contains 18 photographic prints. The photographer(s) of these prints is unknown. Likewise, the individuals portrayed in these photographic prints are also unidentified. One image (289_pht_007_001), was developed at the Perkins Studio in St. Paul, Minnesota, and dates to 1882. It portrays an unidentified Oglala Lakota (Pine Ridge) man, possibly a reservation policeman, posing with two young girls at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Of the remaining 17 photographic prints in this series, two are dated to 1904, and the others do not have a date. Although specific communities are not identified, many images appear to portray Northern Plains and Central Plains American Indian peoples.

Numbers written on the verso of these photographic prints were supplied by the donor, (the Dakota County Historical Society), and do not necessarily correspond with the processing or organization of these materials as they are now presented.

Scope and Contents:
To: Mrs Margaret Blaker. From: John C. Ewers. December 11, 1962. Subject: Portrait of Big Elk used in frontispiece in Morton's Crania Americana. I think that Big Elk may have been a member of the 1821 delegation of Indians from the Central Plains to Washington. John Neagle painted portraits of some, but probably not all of them, in Philadelphia. I believe you have on file photos of some of these, the originals of which are now in the Pennsylvania Historical Society. King's portraits of a number of these Indians are much better known than these. I know of no King portrait of Big Elk. It is difficult to judge an artist's original style from a lithograph produced from the original by another artist. But, the style certainly doesn't resemble King's work to me. I would assume that because Morton and Neagle were both Philadelphians, the artist is correctly atttributed in the caption on the lithograph. Thank you very much for the print. I should like to have it. In my opinion it is a better rendering of an Indian face than King was accustomed to produce. This may be another reason to believe the artist was John Neagle.

Biographical / Historical:
George Bird Grinnell (1849-1938) was born into a prominent family in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Yale University, receiving his B.A. in 1870 and a Ph.D. in paleontology in 1880. While at Yale, Grinnell participated in a paleontological expedition to the central Plains, Wyoming and Utah. In 1874 he served as naturalist and paleontologist in Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer's Black Hills expedition and, in 1875, was a member of William Ludlow's expedition surveying the Yellowstone. In 1899 Grinnell was a naturalist on Edward H. Harriman Expedition to Alaska. In 1876, four years before he earned his Ph.D., Grinnell became the editor-in-chief and soon-to-be owner of Forest and Stream magazine. Under his leadership, it became the country's foremost natural history magazine. Grinnell was the magazine's editor from 1876 until 1911, and he used its pages to help promote the creation of national parks. He was deeply interested in Plains Indians and spent his summers visiting different reservations. He had befriended Frank North and his Pawnee scouts, and accompanied them on buffalo and elk hunts. Grinnell, a prolific writer, authored several books and many articles on Cheyenne, Blackfoot, and Pawnee Indians.

Grinnell was a founding member of both the Audubon Society and Boone and Crockett Club. He chaired the Council on National Parks, Forests and Wildlife, and was president of the National Parks Association. He was a trustee of the New York Zoological Society. Grinnell was also a prominent member of many other associations, such as the American Association of the Advancement of Science and New York Academy of Science. Grinnell was 89 years old when he died in New York City.

Summary:
The core of this photographic collection (1902-1904) was taken during Grinnell's visits among the Northern (Montana, Rosebud County and Rosebud River, Lame Deer) and Southern (Washita County, Oklahoma) Tsitsistas/Suhtai (Cheyenne). The photographs document domestic and daily life on the reservation (especially activies involving women), religious ceremonies, camps and dwellings, and important officials. The attributions of the photographs in this collection are far from certain. While many of these images appear to have been taken by Grinnell himself, a substantial portion were also taken by his wife Elizabeth Curtis Grinnell (b. 1876) and their friend Julia E. Tuell. A very small subset of these images (3) also depicts mountains and vistas in Glacier National Park (Flathead County, Glacier County) Montana.

Biographical/Historical note:
George Bird Grinnell, naturalist, conservationist and Indian rights activist, was born into a prominent family in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Yale University, receiving his B.A. in 1870 and a Ph.D. in paleontology in 1880. While at Yale, Grinnell participated in a paleontological expedition to the central Plains, Wyoming and Utah. In 1874 he served as naturalist and paleontologist in Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer's Black Hills expedition and, in 1875, was a member of William Ludlow's expedition surveying the Yellowstone. In 1899 Grinnell was a naturalist on Edward H. Harriman Expedition to Alaska. Grinnell's lifelong interest in the west was well established long before he left Yale. In 1876, four years before he earned his Ph.D., Grinnell became the editor-in-chief and soon-to-be owner of Forest and Stream magazine. Under his leadership, it became the country's foremost natural history magazine. Grinnell was the magazine's editor from 1876 until 1911, and he used its pages to help promote the creation of national parks. Grinnell played a pivotal role in the creation of Glacier National Park in 1910.

Grinnell's interest in the west extended to its native inhabitants. He was deeply interested in Plains Indians and, year after year, spent his summers visiting different reservations. He had befriended Frank North and his Pawnee scouts, and accompanied them on buffalo and elk hunts. Grinnell witnessed the destruction of game animals, brought about by commercial hunters, and was cognizant of its impact on Plains Indians' way of life. Grinnell, a prolific writer, authored several books and many articles on Cheyenne, Blackfoot, and Pawnee Indians, the most well-know of which was the two volume work entitled "The Cheyenne Indians: Their History and Way of Life," first published in 1923. Until his death, he remained a staunch supporter of Cheyenne rights.

Grinnell was a founding member of both the Audubon Society and Boone and Crockett Club (with Theodore Roosevelt). He chaired the Council on National Parks, Forests and Wildlife, and was president of the National Parks Association. He was a trustee of the New York Zoological Society. Grinnell was also a prominent member of many other associations, such as the American Association of the Advancement of Science and New York Academy of Science. Grinnell was 89 years old when he died in New York City.

"The plain lies in the middle of the western Rift Valley. It is surrounded by high, steep mountains (Mitumba >2000m) on its western side and by gently sloping hills on its eastern side. A lake covered the bottom of the Rift Valley during the last pluvial era but later shrank to its present position, leaving a series of abandoned sand dunes, barrier beaches and flats. The plain is bounded to the north by what was formerly known as Lake Edward. The Virunga volcanoes in the south across the rift valley force the waters to flow northwards to the Nile. Salted springs associated with the volcanism pour a large amount of salt into the Rutshuru River and subsequently in the lake. The Rutshuru flows through the centre of the plain. Two other rivers that also flow across the plain in a south-north direction are the Rwindi and the Ishasha, the former to east of the Rutshuru River and the latter to the west of it." [VAN GYSEL J., ANDRE J.-M., 1997: Use of a Quantitative Method to Assess Vegetation Changes in the Central Plain of the Virunga National Park, Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo.

"Virunga National Park (809,000 ha.) was the first national park created in Africa (Albert National Park, 1925); located at the border between several biogeographical zones, the park protects both tropical rain forest and eastern steppe species, and its range of altitudes adds to the habitat variety. The diversity includes: bamboo and Hagenia forest on the mountains; equatorial forest along the Semiliki; wooded savanna of the Rwindi; steppes of Carissa, Capparis, Maerua and Euphorbia calycina; various low savannas; swamps and transitional habitats; dry thick forest of Euphorbia dawei; forest on the lava plains; wet thick forest; white heath; alpine forests; and sparse vegetation above 4,300m comprising mainly lichens and spermatophyta, although Graminae have been found growing at over 5,000m. Some of the largest wild animal concentrations in Africa occur along the rivers of the park. Mammals in the savanna of the Rwindi area include: elephant, in the southern part of the park, hippopotamus, buffalo, numerous antelope including kob Kobus kob, defassa waterbuck and topi, warthog, lion, and various monkeys."

"The plain lies in the middle of the western Rift Valley. It is surrounded by high, steep mountains (Mitumba >2000m) on its western side and by gently sloping hills on its eastern side. A lake covered the bottom of the Rift Valley during the last pluvial era but later shrank to its present position, leaving a series of abandoned sand dunes, barrier beaches and flats. The plain is bounded to the north by what was formerly known as Lake Edward. The Virunga volcanoes in the south across the rift valley force the waters to flow northwards to the Nile. Salted springs associated with the volcanism pour a large amount of salt into the Rutshuru River and subsequently in the lake. The Rutshuru flows through the centre of the plain.
