Collection History:

Edward Sheriff Curtis opened his first photo studio in 1892 in Seattle, Washington, and began photographing Native subjects. In 1899, he was appointed official photographer of the Harriman Expedition to Alaska and served on other expeditions as well. In 1906, American financier J. P. Morgan (1837-1913) commissioned Curtis to create a multi-volume documentary work on American Indians with 1500 photographs. The final volumes were published in 1930, by which time Curtis had taken 40,000 photographs documenting 80 tribes. No other collection history information available.
