August Morning photograph by E.W. Merrill
11/1/2012 - American Indian: Online Auction
Elbridge Warren Merrill (American, 1868-1929), early 20th century.  Hand-tinted photograph, signed in white paint l.l., titled on verso; framed 15.75  x  19.5 in.

Merrill, a newspaper photographer from Boston, Massachusetts, settled in Alaska after the 1897 Klondike gold rush.  In Alaska his photographs began to focus on the tribes of the Northwest Coast, especially the Tlingit Indians, and the natural beauty of the surrounding area. From 1919-1922 Merrill served as the official custodian what would become the Sitka National Park.  Today his photographs are valued not only for their historical importance, but also for their artistry.
