Title

Portrait of James Stewart, Nez Perce man

Description

Portrait of James Stewart, a Nez Perce man who attended the Forest Grove Indian School beginning in 1883, and graduated from the school in its new location in Salem in 1885. He continued working at the school for some time afterwards. In this picture, he appears to be wearing the school's military-style school uniform. Based on the dates of activity of the photographer, this image was probably taken between 1885-1888 (Robinson, Oregon Photographers, 1993, p. 394).
