Scope and Contents note:
Photographs relating to Eskimos that were part of a set made in connection with Robert Joseph Flaherty's documentary, Nannook of the North. They consist primarily of portraits of Eskimos, as well as images of a kayak in Hudson Bay, an Eskimo in the ice fields, and a close up image of a husky.
Biographical/Historical note:
Robert Joseph Flaherty (1884-1951) was born in Iron Mountain, Michigan, and spent his childhood traveling with his family to the mining regions in Michigan, Minnesota, and Canada. Formally educated at Upper Canada College and Michigan College of Mines, he mostly studied geology and engineering subjects. After leaving the Michigan College of Mines and marrying Frances Hubbard, Flaherty settled in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay), working as a surveyor and prospector across Canada. His father introduced him to Sir William Mackenzie, who was building a trans-Canada railroad (now the Canadian National Railway), and Mackenzie commissioned Flaherty to study the Nastapoka Islands. During this expedition (1910-1911), Flaherty developed a relationship with the Great Whale Inuit Camp. He completed three more expeditions (1911-1912, 1913-1914, and 1915-1916) for Mackenzie, during which he took numerous photographs and filmed the Inuit during his later expeditoins to Baffin Island and Belcher Islands. In 1920, Flaherty met Captain Thierry Mallet of Revillon Freres and convinced him to support a filmmaking expedition to the company's sub-arctic fur trading post, Port Harrison on Cape Dufferin. By the 1920-1921 expedition to Port Harrison (Inukjuak), Flaherty was focusing almost exclusively on film documentation, and most of his photographic work appears oriented toward the production of the film. Ultimately, Flaherty produced the first commercially successful feature length documentary film and the pioneering ethnographic film, Nannok of of the North (1922).

Scope and Contents:
Truman Michelson's field notes on the Cree of James Bay and Hudson Bay in Canada. The materials, consisting primarily of texts and linguistic notes and some ethnological notes, were collected as part of Michelson's efforts to make a linguistic map of the area. The coverage of the notes is thus expansive and includes the Cree of Moose River, Rupert House, East Main, Albany River, English River, Severn Island, Weenusk, Waswanipi, Great Whale River, and Fort George. The texts are mostly stories from Frank Ricard and Harvey Smallboy, written in Moose Cree syllabic and phonetic text with English translations. There is also a story from Emily Trapper written in Rupert House Cree syllabary and translated into Moose Cree and English. Michelson worked closely with William Allan, who provided a great deal of linguistic and ethnological information and translated most of the Cree texts into English.

One of the latter would be invited to beat the big wooden box drum, painted with the killer whale crest, while the Tequedi man sang and the Teqca a Tequedi woman danced. The drummer would be given an extra gift for his services. They say invaluable because the owners have paid so much to their guests everytime they have sung it.

Lantern slides, probably largely collected by Joseph Stanley-Brown while stationed at Dutch Harbor in charge of the Pribilof Island seal fisheries, from 1890-1898.

There are also slides of related maps and charts, and images of buildings in Washington, DC, exhibits at the Smithsonian Institutuion, and cowboys, possibly on the Great Plains. Some lantern slides have labels from "E. H. Harriman, 1 E. 55th Street, New York."
Biographical/Historical note:
Born in Washington, DC, Joseph Stanley-Brown (1858-1941) served as private secretary to President James A. Garfield and to President Chester A. Arthur after Garfield's assassination. In 1882, he joined the US Geological Survey and was appointed Assistant Geologist (1888-1889). Stanley-Brown was appointed in 1891 by the Secretary of the Treasury to investigate conditions in the seal industry on the Pribilof islands, which was a contentious issue between the United States and Great Britain. He represented the United States as secretary to the Bering Sea Joint Commission and to commissioners at the Fur Seal Tribunal of Arbitration, Paris, France. He later became a superintendent and leaseholder for the North American Commercial Companyʹs government-regulated sealing activities on the Pribilofs and Unalaska, and worked with several railroad companies.
