Photographs Made on the Rodman Wanamaker Historical Expeditions to the North American Indian Comprise the Most Complete Collection of Indian Subjects in Existence
Very Good. A scarce catalog of photos taken by Joseph K. Dixon. No date. Light soil, a few creases and chips, and paper scuffs on wrapper. Advertising the entire exhibit of the Rodman Wanamaker Indian Pictures at the Palace of Education, Avenue C, between Fifth and Sixth Streets. Philadelphia department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker funded expeditions to photograph what he considered a "vanishing race." Joseph Kossuth Dixon's photos were heavily staged and Wanamaker was also filming using Native Americans as actors. The expeditions to the Western United States reservations took place in 1908, 1909, and 1913, and the pamphlet's sepia-toned photos have copyright dates of 1913 and 1914. The proceeds for the prints were to go to a National American Indian Memorial that broke ground but was never constructed. ; B&W Photographs; 7" x 5"; 12 pp . (Inventory #: 011654)
