Collection History
Collection history unknown; acquired from the photography team of Winter and Pond (Lloyd V. Winter, 1866-1945, and E. Percy Pond, 1872-1943) in 1934 by Axel Rasmussen (1886-1945, a collector and superintendent of schools in Wrangell and Sitka, Alaska); lent by Axel Rasmussen to the Wrangell Institute (a Native boarding School in Wrangell, Alaska) at an unknown date and presumably transferred to the Institute's possession with Rasmussen's death in 1945; purchased by Susan D.

Barrow (1909-1987, a ship captain) from the Wrangell Institute in 1945; purchased by MAI from Mr. and Mrs. Barrow in 1948.
