This collection contains 39 glass plate negatives, dating from the 1880s, from the studio of John Nicholas Choate. Choate was a photographer based in the town of Carlisle who took thousands of images of Carlisle Indian School students, buildings, and related subjects. The images in this collection are portraits, mostly of single subjects or groups of two people. Some of the images are identified with captions. The negatives in this collection represent unique images which were not prepared for wider commercial sale. As a result, prints of these images are not known to exist.
