Identifier: PICT-000-478

Scope and Content

Most of the photographs in this collection were taken by Alice Bullock and record the places she visited and wrote about and the people she met. Well-known artists, writers, actors and actresses, as well as local personalities are included. There are also portraits of Alice Bullock. The bulk of the collection is photos of locales in New Mexico, many of them rural. A postcard collection (folder 318) contains reproductions of early photographs of the Old West--Indians, outlaws, cowboys, pioneers, etc.--taken by the L.A. Huffman Studio in Miles City, Montana. Native American dances, rural dwellings, petroglyphs, penitentes, Native American and Spanish Colonial arts, pinon harvesting and landscapes also appear in this collection.
