Portrait of woman, signed Alex Duncan


A portrait of an unidentified woman. On the back, the photograph is signed “Alex Duncan.” This photograph was found with material relating to the Walker family. Alexander Duncan appears to have been a Clatsop man who attended the Forest Grove Indian School and its successor, the Chemawa Indian School, where the Walkers worked. This photograph might have been sent to the Walkers by Duncan. It matches other carte-de-visite photographs in this collection by W. P. Johnson of Salem that are dated. It was probably taken between 1886-1888 (Robinson, Oregon Photographers, 1993, p. 394).
From front of photo: Specialty. From back of photo: Alex Duncan
