Mrs. Julia Ethel Tuell (1886-1960) lived on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Montana from 1906 to 1912; Stroud, Oklahoma with the Sac and Fox Indians in 1913; and on the Sioux Indian Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota from 1913-1929. A photographer, her images were used by George Bird Grinnell to illustrate his books “The Cheyenne Indians” v. I & II, New Haven: Yale University Press, 1923.  Included in this collection are three photo albums dated from 1908-1918. The first two albums described are of Northern Cheyenne reservation life, and third begins on the Northern Cheyenne but ends on the Rosebud.

Descriptive text for most of the photographs are under the photo in white pen or written on the back of the photo. Some photos in this collection can also be found in her biography “Women and Warriors of the Plains: The Pioneer Photography of Julia E. Tuell” by Dan Aadland, MacMillan, NY: 1996. The final photographs in album, (after c. #106?) are dated to when Mrs. Tuell would have been living on the Rosebud Reservation.
