Date:
undated
Scope and Contents note:
Copies of lantern slides collected by Rollyn Osterweis Kirchbaum, at least two of which were made by the Beseler Lantern Slide Company. They include two portraits of Sitting Bull as well as views of canoe and basket making by Iroquois Indians in the Lower St. Lawrence River region. The photographs depicting Iroquois Indians were probably made by Alexander Henderson, circa 1865-1875. The British Columbia images were originally made by Alexander Henderson, and the Sitting Bull images were originally made by William Notman & Son.
Biographical/Historical note:
Alexander Henderson (1831-1913) and William Notman (1826-1891) were Scottish photographers and colleagues in Montreal, Canada. Notman was mostly a portrait photographer in his studio, William Notman & Son. In the mid-1860s, Henderson also opened a studio in Montreal, but appears to have specialized in outdoor photography. In 1860, the two men made a photographic expedition to Niagara Falls and helped found the Art Association of Montreal.
