Portrait of an older man taken in Salem


Portrait of an older man taken in Salem


Portrait of an unidentified older man with a distinctive beard. The photograph is dated on the back: 188[?]-12-24. The W.P. Johnson studio in Salem, which took the photograph, was active from 1886-1888 (See: Robinson, Oregon Photographers, 1993, p. 394). This photograph may be connected to the Samuel Ammon Thurston Walker family, which donated many photographs taken at the same studio to the Pacific University Archives. Many of the other photographs from this studio in Pacific's collection are related to the Chemawa Indian School. This may be a staff person from that school.
