Collection History:

William Henry Jackson was a photographer for Dr. Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden's United States Geographical and Geological Surveys in the 1870s. In addition to these survey photographs, Jackson was also active in photographing Indian delegations travelling to Washington, DC. He was hired by the Bureau of American Ethnology to catalog the thousands of photographs in their collection, and in the process inadvertently received credit as the photographer for many images he did not actually create. No other collection history information available.
