Photographs of the Maricopa People by Daniel Boone Linderman
As a missionary, teacher, and photographer, Daniel Boone Linderman documented the Pima and Maricopa during the early 20th century. His photographs center on Native American ethnography, particularly showcasing mission schools, group portraits of families and their homes, and farming.
This collection highlights Native American ethnography with a selection of historic scenes from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. Photographs feature both Mr. and Mrs. Linderman interacting with the students of the Maricopa Day School, as well as the architecture of Maricopa dwellings in the early 1900s.
The collection was donated to Arizona State Museum by Florence A. Linderman, daughter of Daniel Boone Linderman.
