Andrew A. Forbes - Photographs of the Owens Valley Paiute


This article presents 16 previously unpublished photographs of the Owens Valley Paiute, taken between 1903 and 1916, together with some comments on the images and the man who made them. Their publication at this time is the result of a communication from William Marvin Mason, Curator of History at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History and a Contributing Editor to the Journal, which informed us of the existence of an extensive collection of photographs, including some of Califomia Indians, taken by A. A. Forbes of Bishop, California. With rare exceptions, the photographs in this collection have never been published.
