Date:
April-November, 1919
Scope and Contents:
Includes Autograph Document (carbon copy) 96 pages. The Wichita texts are entitled, "Wichita Stories," and, except the first, numbered with Roman numerals (II-X). Each of the 10 sections is apparently a separate story, because each begins with an introductory formula. The Kichai translations of four of these Wichita stories are given numbers corresponding to the 4 Wichita stories. Each Kichai translation has an accompanying carbon copy. The vocabularies include separate Kichai and Wichita word lists and phrases as well as a short comparative vocabulary of the two. There is also 1 sheet containing words in other Indian languages as well as Wichita and Kichai.
Biographical / Historical:
Kichai informants: Josie Caley, Old Man Yellowbird, and "Wits and wife." John Hadden was the interpreter with Jose Caley. No Wichita informants are named by Swanton, but the informant for a Wichita version of a Pawnee story is recorded as saying that the "name of Old Pawnee who told him the story [was] giwakodadaka."
The location and date of the collection of this material is mentioned in Bureau of American Ethnology-AR 40, page 5, and Bureau of American Ethnology-AR 41, page 7.
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 4125
Local Note:
The last 5 Wichita texts, the Kichai translations, and a 16 page Kichai vocabulary were formerly filed under Manuscript Number 4137. They were added to Manuscript Number 4125 as of 6/1970.

Albums
Photographs
Date:
circa 1877
Scope and Contents note:
Albums probably assembled by William Henry Jackson, mostly containing portraits of American Indian delegates in Washington, D.C. and photographs made on US Geological Surveys (including the Hayden and Powell surveys). Photographs from the field include John K. Hillers' photographs of the Southwest, photographs of Fort Laramie (possibly by Alexander Gardner), Orloff R. Westmann's photographs of Taos Pueblo, and Jackson's photographs of Crow, Shoshoni, Pawnee, and Nez Perce Indians and related sites. Most of the photographs were made circa 1860s-1870s.

The albums were likely made by Jackson while working under Ferdinand V. Hayden for the United States Geological Survey of the Territories. The reason for their creation is uncertain, though it may have been a project set up by Hayden or a continuation of William Henry Blackmore's tradition of publishing albums. Some of the albums include captions pasted from Jackson's Descriptive Catalogue of Photographs of North American Indians (1877) while others have handwritten captions.
Biographical/Historical note:
William Henry Jackson (1843-1942) was an American painter, photographer and explorer. Born in New York, he sold drawings and retouched photographs from an early age. After serving in the Civil War, he opened a photography studio in Omaha, Nebraska, with his brother Edward. As photographer for the US Geological and Geographical Surveys (1870-1878), he documented the American west and published the first photographs of Yellowstone. When the surveys lost funding in 1879, Jackson opened a studio in Denver, Colorado, and also worked for various railroad companies. Many of Jackson's photographs were displayed at the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago (1893), for which he was the official photographer.
