Summary:
This collection contains 51 photographs collected by Edward Weed that depict various American Indian communities.
Scope and Contents:
P07342-P07370, N36353, N36354

This collection of 51 photographs (49 photographs and 2 copy negatives) that were collected by Edward Weed from his artist father-in-law Vincent Colyer. The collection is an assortment of photographs shot by different photographers and depicting Native communities including Apache; Coast Salish; Diné (Navajo); Eastern Band of Cherokee; Kwakwaka'wakw (Kwakiutl); Mojave (Mohave); Oklahoma Cherokee; Peoria; Pikuni (Piegan) [Blackfeet Nation, Browning, Montana]; Pueblo; Quechan (Yuma/ Cuchan); Shoshone; Shusawp; Stó:lo (Lower Fraser River Salish); Tlingit; and Ute.

Photographs in this collection were shot by N. Brown and Son Co.; M.A. Kennedy Co.; Charles Gentile and Co.; Moulton A. Kleckner; Henry Lorenzen; H. P. Osborne; Savage and Ottinger Co.; Noah Shakespeare; and Valentin Wolfenstein.

The photographs in this collection require additional research. It is believed that many may be mis-identified and/or mis-attributed.
Arrangement:
The photographs are arranged in folders according to image number.
Biographical / Historical:
Little is known about Edward F. Weed. It is believed that his father-in-law may have been American artist Vincent Colyer (1824-1888). In addition to painting, Colyer had traveled to the American Southwest between 1868-1871 to report on reservation conditions for Friends of the Indians, a Quaker organization. In 1869, he also surveyed conditions for the newly created Board of Indian Commissioners. It is believed that Coyler collected the photographs in this collection during one of these trips to the Southwest or soon afterward.
Provenance:
The photographs in this collection were donated by Edward F. Weed in 1925 and 1927. They were collected by his possible father-in-law and artist Vincent Colyer from photographer Nicholas Brown.
