A family portrait of the Minnie and Samuel Ammon Thurston Walker Family of Forest Grove, Oregon. From left to right: Minerva ("Minnie") Jane Knighten Walker, Raleigh Clay Walker, Charles Lovell Walker, Pearl May Walker, and Samuel Ammon Thurston Walker. Around the time this portrait was taken, Samuel and Minnie were working as instructors for the Forest Grove Indian School and its successor, the Chemawa Indian School. Most of the family members pictured here were also known for their music and formed several popular bands in later years. This photograph is part of the Charles Lovell and Winnette Sears Walker Collection. Winnette was a 1906 alumna of Linfield College. Charles was an alumnus of Tualatin Academy who later became a musician and an insurance agent in Hillsboro, Oregon.
