Summary note
Photograph album, being volume 12 of a larger set of photographs taken by A. C. Vroman and compiled and captioned by him. This volume contains photographs of Adam C. Vroman's portraits and genre studies in Arizona, entitled "Arizona | Hopi | Pueblos." It contains 118 platinum print (plainotype) ethnographic photographs of Hopi Indians, Hopi pueblos, and the native lifestyle in Arizona. A topic of interest is the Hopi Snake Dance, photographed at the pueblo at Walpi. The Flute Ceremony at Oraibi is also featured, along with views of daily and family life at Mishongnovi. This album represents (at least in part) the cultural studies of the Museum-Gates Expedition (1901) consisting of Peter Goddard Gates, a California philanthropist, and Dr. Walter Hough of the United States National Museum. A.C. Vroman was the official photographer of that expedition. The photographs (either 21 x 15.5 cm. or 15 x 19.5 cm.) are numbered 1200-1299L and each leaf features a manuscript caption in English.
