Richard Throssel Photographs
Born in Marengo, Washington in 1882, Richard Throssel entered the world of photography at the age of 20. He had recently moved to the Crow Reservation in Montana, and he quickly became interested in taking photographs of the people and the land around him. Throssel would remain on the reservation until 1911, and he took over 1000 photos of Crow Indian life before he left. This digital collection from the American Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming presents over 570 of his images. Visitors can browse the collection by subject or date, and each item contains a complete bibliographical record. As one might expect, visitors can zoom in and out around the photo as they see fit in order to look for various details and nuances. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2010. http://scout.wisc.edu/
