Biographical/Historical note:
Adam Clark Vroman (1856-1916) was a bookstore owner and photographer of Southwest Native Americans and culture. He and his wife moved to Pasadena, California, in 1892, where he took up photography, mostly documenting pueblos in New Mexico. After his wife's death in 1894, Vroman opened a bookstore in Pasadena, though he continued to make photography excursions to southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico. He also made photographs for the Bureau of American Ethnology during two expeditions in 1897 and 1899. Vroman's photographs illustrated the 1913 edition of Helen Hunt Jackson's novel Ramona.
