Collection History:

Between 1879 and 1902, J.N. Choate worked as a commercial photographer in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and was commissioned to photograph students at the Carlisle Indian School. During that period, he often photographed students' visiting family members as well. This print was formerly in the collection of General Nelson A. Miles (1839-1925, U.S. Army); inherited by his children, Cecelia Miles Reber (Mrs. Samuel K. Reber, 1869-1952) and Major Sherman Miles (1882-1966); donated to MAI in 1925.
