The Sheldon Jackson Collection of Indian Photographs 582 items

The Sheldon Jackson Collection of Indian Photographs (WC055) consists of three portfolios of approximately 750 photographic prints of Indians compiled by Jackson, probably from negatives in the collections of the Bureau of American Ethnology. Many of the photographs are identified with labels taken from Jackson's Descriptive Catalogue of Photographs of North American Indians (1877). Included are photographs of Indians of many North American tribes, such as the Apache, Dakotas, Comanche, Cheyenne, Kiowa, Yuma, Ute, Navajo, Hopi, Crow, and Sioux; photographs taken at the Indian School (1879) in Carlisle, Pa., Zuni Pueblo, Sheldon Jackson College (1881), and Sitka, Alaska; and photographs of ancient ruins in Colorado and Utah and cliff-dwellings in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. This collection has been fully digitized as either individual photographs or as two portfolios and is accessible via Princeton's Finding Aids in addition to DPUL.
