Portrait of Alex Duncan, Clatsop man


Portrait of Alex (or Alexander) Duncan, a member of the Clatsop tribe who attended the Forest Grove Indian Training School and Chemawa School. He entered the school at age 16 in November 1884. He is leaning on a book in this photograph, possibly indicating that this was a graduation portrait. Based on other similar photographs in the Pacific University Archives and on the dates when the photographer was active, this photograph was most likely taken in Salem between 1886-1888.
