Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

The series contains images made in and around Oklahoma. Some captions in this series date the images to October 1890, while the chronology below indicates Scott had already left Oklahoma by this time. However, Scott traveled through Oklahoma in order to reach his next destination, and thus these dates may be accurate and have been assigned to other images through context. Dates are assigned according to the following chronology:

1890 August 1 – Scott arrives at the Anadarko Indian Agency. His first letters say he took a lot of photographs of old frontiersmen. [Titterton, page 191]

1890 August 9 – Scott goes to Fort Sill, Oklahoma to witness beef ration issue. During his stay in Oklahoma he took many short trips around the Territory. [Titterton, page 191]

1890 September 28 – Scott left the Anadarko Agency for New Mexico. He travelled to Purcell, Oklahoma to catch the train west. [Titterton, page 206]

[1890 September 29 - October 2 - Travel from Oklahoma to New Mexico]
