Negative  "1930"

Outdoor profile portrait of the woman Louise Mali A'n (Denny) Morris, wearing a long dress with lace trim, an embroidered or beaded ribboned jacket, a paisley shawl, and a beaded conical hat. She is holding two rectangular baskets. It is likely that Johnson took her picture as she was on her way to sell her baskets. Her daughter Rita stands behind her, in a pasture-like setting with woods and a shingled structure in background. Bundle to her left may hold more baskets. Originally catalogued as "Mrs. Louise Morris."

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 and the U.S., some of which were sponsored by MAI. This photograph probably accompanied the object collections he acquired for MAI.
