T.J. Morgan, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, with Richard Henry Pratt and teachers [pose 1], c.1890

Portrait of T.J. Morgan, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, posed with Richard Henry Pratt and the school's teachers on the school grounds. 

The school newspapers reported a visited by Morgan to the school in February of 1890. It's possible that this photograph was taken at that time although the weather does not appear very wintry.
