Collection History:

Alexander Gardner emigrated to the US in 1856 and began work with photographer Mathew Brady, eventually managing Brady's Washington, DC studio through 1862. In 1872, the Office of Indian Affairs contracted Gardner to photograph the American Indian delegates to Washington, D.C. These images, representing nineteen tribes, were then compiled by English collector William Henry Blackmore into ten albums and exhibited at the Smithsonian. The original negatives were eventually transferred to the Bureau of American Ethnology and then the Smithsonian Institution. No other collection history information available.
