Summary:
Scrapbook entitled "Our Wild Indians in Peace and War: Surveys, Expeditions, Mining and Scenery of the Great West," compiled by James E. Taylor, possibly as a source for his own illustrations.
Scope and Contents:
Scrapbook entitled "Our Wild Indians in Peace and War: Surveys, Expeditions, Mining and Scenery of the Great West," compiled by James E. Taylor, possibly as a source for his own illustrations. The album includes photographs (mostly albumen with three tintypes), newsclippings, wood engravings, and lithographs, some of which are reproductions of Taylor's own illustrations and paintings. Photographs depict American Indians, US Army soldiers and scouts, historical sites, forts, and scenery. Some were made on expeditions, including the Hayden and Powell surveys, and created from published stereographs. Many of Taylor's illustrations are signed, and some are inscribed with dates and "N. Y." The scrapbook also includes clippings from newspapers and other written sources relating to illustrations and photographs in the album.
Biographical Note:
James E. Taylor (1839-1901) was an artist-correspondent for Leslie's Illustrated Weekly Newspaper from 1863-1883. Born in Cincinatti, Ohio, he graduated from Notre Dame University by the age of sixteen. Taylor enlisted in the 10th New York Infantry in 1861 and the next year was hired by Leslie's Illustrated newspaper as a "Special Artist" and war correspondent. In 1864 he covered the Shenandoah Valley campaign, and was later one of the illustrator-correspondents at the 1867 treaty negotiations at Medicine Lodge, Kansas. He soon earned the moniker "Indian Artist" because of his vast number of drawings of American Indians. In 1883 Taylor retired from Leslie's to work as a freelance illustrator. Colonel Richard Irving Dodge used Taylor's drawings to illustrate his memoir, "Our Wild Indians: Thirty-three Years' Personal Experience among the Red Men of the Great West" (1882).

Biographical Note - David Collier Sharpstone:
David Collier Sharpstone (1902-1967) was an American geologist who worked at the Kilembe Copper Mine in Uganda and the Connemara Mine in Zimbabwe (then Southern Rhodesia). He lived with his wife, Ramah, and their children Alexandra (Alex) and William (Bill) in Kilembe while working at the Kilembe Mine and on a farm called Stoneycroft near Bulawayo while working at the Connemara Mine. The family also lived in London for a year while Sharpstone worked in Europe. In 1942, he traveled to South Africa as part of a U.S. survey team looking for alternative mineral resources during World War II. At different points in his career he worked for the Metals Reserve Corp, a subsidiary of the Reconstruction Finance Corp, and the Homestake Mineral Development Company, part of the Homestake Mining Company.

Sharpstone had a passion for photography. He used 16mm Eastman Kodak and 8mm and 16mm Bell and Howell cameras. He also used a Leica screw mount camera. He did his own editing and splicing and took many trips with his wife while living in Uganda and Zimbabwe to observe and film the animals and countryside. He died in California in 1967.
Biographical Note - Lance Smith:
Lance Smith was a farmer and politician in Rhodesia. He was born in England in 1910 and emigrated to Rhodesia in 1935. He served as a policeman in Gwelo before moving with his family to Banket and buying a farm. He became active in politics in the 1950s and eventually rose to the position of Minister of Internal Affairs. He was one of the signers of the Unilateral Day of Independence (UDI) proclamation on November 11, 1965, which declared the independence of Rhodesia from Great Britain. He was also one of the founders of the Rhodesian Front Party, serving as the vice president under president Ian Smith, to whom he was not related. Smith left office in 1974 and returned to his farm in Banket, where he remained after Zimbabwe gained its independence in 1980 and Mugabe's rise to power. He died on May 4, 2000.
