Negative  "1930"

Two men (one wearing beaded vest, apron and belt [?]) and two women (both wearing shawls, ribboned and beaded jackets and conical hats) posed in front of a birchbark wigwam (NMAI object 176513). Originally cataloged as Christopher Morris, Peter Paul, Mary Anne Morris and Mrs. Morris. Per Mi'kmaq Community Elders: " We suspect that these four old people are Chris and Mary Josephine Morris, and Stephen and Isabel Morris. He [Frederick Johnson] was not the first anthropologist to visit with the Morrises. Clara Dennis and Elsie Clews Parsons, among others, had visited with them in previous years"

Collection History:

Frederick Johnson began his anthropological studies as a teenager, accompanying anthropologist Frank G. Speck (1881-1951) on trips to Native communities in Quebec. Between 1923 and 1929, Johnson studied at the University of Pennsylvania and conducted several research trips in Canada, some of which were sponsored by MAI. This photograph probably accompanied the object collections he acquired for MAI.
