Summary
Samuel Anderson, Hamilton B. Hillyer, Mary E. Jacobson, David H. Swartz--there long-forgotten men and women are brought back into focus, along with thousands of others, in this comprehensive directory of nineteenth-century Texas photographers. It is the definitive reference source for libraries, students, scholars, and genealogists. Using censuses, city directories, newspapers, and other sources, the author has compiled a checklist of nearly 2,500 photographers working in the state during the years 1843-1900, when Texas went from a rough frontier to an oil-fueled colossus. Each entry in the alphabetical listing includes the photographer's name, biographical information, known dates and locations, and the source of this information. In a valuable introduction, the author discusses the history of photography and the story of its development and practice in Texas. Comprehensive indexes of locations and dates and of black, female, and foreign-born photographers are also included.--Cover
