Language of Materials
The partnership between English immigrant, Frederick Henry Harvey and the Santa Fe Railway began in 1876, when Harvey leased and refurbished the first "Harvey House" restaurant/hotel in Topeka, Kansas. This partnership forever changed the nature of tourism in the American Southwest, offering travelers a "swift, safe, comfortable journey west-with a touch of adventure. They used sophisticated marketing techniques to advertise the exotic and romantic Southwest, and thousands of travelers embarked on their journeys with these images in mind. The excursions were lucrative for the Santa Fe Railway and the Fred Harvey Company, and educational and exciting for the tourists..." A new market for Native arts and crafts emerged. The Santa Fe Railroad, the Fred Harvey Company, travelers, and the indigenous communities of the region all were integral elements in a partnership that spanned more than 75 years.
