Geronimo, Apache Chief (Photo Postcard with Important Description on verso)

Item #027354

A.B. Canady's photograph studio was in Altoona, Kansas. His early photographic career was in Missouri, Indiana and New York. He traveled in 1907 from Altoona to Oklahoma where he took this photograph for which he holds the copyright. The Library of Congress holds an original gelatin silver image. J.W. Collins for whom Collinsville, Oklahoma is named also holds a copyright for this image. The writer on the verso of the unmailed postcard describes the image: "This is a good picture of this old Chief. It was taken at Collinsville [Oklahoma] this fall, when he was there for a last pow-wow, under government guard. I saw him when at Lawton. He and about 600 of his tribe as Prisoners of war and held at Ft. Sill, Okla. He did not have the head gear on when I saw him. But otherwise he was the same. Don't forget to ask me about some of their customs when I see you. Signed only E. While "E" is not identified, it is obvious the writer was a first hand witness of the events of Geronimo in Oklahoma. Geronimo died at Fort Sill, in February 1909 at age 79.
