Students in Physics Class [version 2], 1901

Male and female students posed with white female teacher in a classroom with laboratory equipment. 

Johnston took two very similar photographs of this classroom group. The other version can be seen in Related Images.

The Cumberland County Historical Society's cataloging of the other version of this image idenfies this as "Miss Cutter's Physics Class." 

In 1901 the Bureau of Indian Affairs contracted with the photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston to document the school at Carlisle for an exhibit at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Johnston visited the school in the spring of that year and took at least one hundred photographs. Johnston donated her personal papers, including 103 prints of the photographs taken at Carlisle, to the Library of Congress.
