About the Artist

(1864-1934)  "Roland W. Reed was an American photographer who was born in 1864 in the Fox River Valley of Wisconsin. His parents were farm people of Scottish ancestry. He grew up in a log cabin near the old Indian trail that led from Lake Poygan to Fond du Lac, and the hero of his boyhood days was an Indian named Thundercloud—the chief of a band of Menominies who camped on the opposite side of the lake.

Reed's handwritten notes (which have survived these many years packed with his glass-plate negatives) reveal that he remained keenly interested in Indians throughout his early life, and that at the age of eighteen he headed west—where he first attempted to record their vanishing faces in crayon and pencil.  It was the beginning of a lifelong odyssey that would see him journey back and forth across this continent—always in search of Indian subjects." taken from provided by the Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site
