Solomon McCombs Papers

Creator:
McCombs, Solomon, 1913-1980 (Creek)  Search this
Extent:
2 Linear feet
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Date:
1941-1974
Scope and Contents:
Reflecting the professional activity of Solomon McCombs, Creek Indian artist, and promoter of his people's culture, these papers include correspondence, lectures, unpublished writings, photographs, and various other items collected by the artist.

The bulk of the correspondence consists of two categories of incoming letters pertaining to McCombs' artistic activities: 1) those referring to exhibitions, one-man shows, awards and prizes; 2) correspondence with fellow artists, such as Acee Bluee Eagle (maintained over a period of seven years, 1952-1958), Fred Beaver, Robert Mulky, and Joan Hill. Amply referred to, starting in 1948, are the annual exhibitions at the Philbrook Art Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in which McCombs regularly participated. A substantial portion of the letters written during the 1954-1955 period refers to the artist's Asian and African tour, sponsored by the U.S. State Department and devoted to the presentation of the American Indian contribution to the development of hte United States and its culture. Part of the correspondence related to his career as an illustrator, architectural draftsman, cartographer and audio-visual officer for the General Service Administration and the State Department. Some letters document his activities as a founder and President of American Indian and Eskimo Cultural Foundation. Included are also letters from prominent personalities, such as Hubert Humphrey and Richard Nixon.

The lectures on American Indian art, which are part of the collection, were presented on various occasions in the United States and abroad. One speech, which he entitled "My report to the Creeks," describes his experiences and observations abroad.

Among the subject files assembled by Solomon McCombs there is one on the Exhibitions at St. John's Church which contains material on the artist, his wife Margarita Sauer McCombs, and Anne T. Stinson who jointly exhibited there.

The photographs were taken at the Contemporary American Indian Art Exhibit sponsored by Arizona State University, the University of South Dakota and the University of Utah. Among the different items collected by S. McCombs, from stamps to all kinds of cards, there is a geneaology of the McIntosh family and a catalog list of an Exhibit of Oklahoma Indian Paintings during the 1940-1941 season in which are listed paintings by Solomon McCombs and Acee Blue Eagle.

There is very little on his private life or his career prior to coming to Washington D.C., and nothing on his childhood or education. Nor is there any reference made to his published works.

The National Anthropological Archives has a few of Solomon McCombs' works in its Collection of Tradtional and Contemporary American Indian Art.

Scope and Contents note:
Photographs used to illustrate John Reed Swanton's "The Indians of the Southeastern United States" depicting American Indians of the Southeast and their dwellings, food preparation, and ceremonies.
Biographical/Historical note:
John Reed Swanton (1873-1958) was an ethnologist and ethnohistorian with the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE) from 1900 until his retirement in 1944. Swanton spent his first few years at the BAE studying the Haida and Tlingit groups of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, and published a number of significant articles on the language, ethnography, and folklore of Northwest Coast Indians. His focus then shifted to the American Indians of the Southeastern United States, where his interest remained for the rest of his career. In addition to conducting ethnographic fieldwork in the Southeast, Swanton studied extensively the history of the area in order to better understand its indigenous cultures and is considered a pioneer in the field of ethnohistory. During his career Swanton published numerous articles and several major works on Southeastern American Indians, including the reference work The Indians of the Southeastern United States (1946), a Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin (No. 137).

Scope and Contents:

General:
"The Ox Ranch is a working cattle ranch located in high desert terrain, that has been in operation for more than 130 years. It is comprised of 48,000 acres of a combination of private and public land leased from the state, with elevations that range from 3,000 to 6,000 feet. The headquarters of the ranch, where the garden is located, is in a remote valley."
"In the 1860's it was on the main wagon trail leading from the Colorado River to the interior of the Arizona Territory and it's capital in Prescott. The 1,000 gallon per minute spring and the two perennial streams which converge near the ranch headquarters made it an important stopping point for travelers - water being scarce and essential resource in desert climates."
"The abundance of petroglyphs attest to its use by Indian tribes, and from 1864-1875, the United States Army chose it as the location for Camp Date Creek. Indian attacks in the area made the presence of Army troops essential to the safety of miners and settlers as they traveled across the land."
"The first major horticulture endeavor known to occur in the area was the importation of watercress by Major General Corbusier, from the Hassayampa River located near the present town of Wickenburg, Arizona. The watercress thrived and a serious problem of scurvey was resolved. General Corbusier went on to become Surgeon General of the United States."
"The Ox Ranch has been recognized as good cattle country, and it is mentioned in numerous writings since the 1860's. A ten acre lake was constructed in the late 1800's to impound water from the spring to irrigate crops on the fields located at the headquarters."
"The Billingsley family owned the ranch for about 25 years starting in the 1940's and made notable improvements. At that time there was an active farming operation, an orchard, the owner's house was built and the garden was begun."
"The current owners are renovating the ranch buildings, replanted the orchard, undertook to plant hundreds of trees and put in a watering system to sustain them."
"Today, a fence keeps out cattle, horses, deer and javalina (wild pigs). A meandering path is composed of crushed granite lined with rocks from the adjacent desert and there are trees for shade, roses and perennials for color, a combination of drought tolerant and water thirsty plants to match the soil composition and the sun or shade exposures in different areas, and a vegetable and herb garden."
Persons associated with the property include: Cecil Billingsley (former owner from 1955 to approximately 1970); Bill Burris (former owner from approximately 1970 to 1980); Grantham Brothers (former owner from approximately 1980 to 1990); Joe Nimitz (garden consultant in 1990).
