The catalogue of the 2003 exhibition at Yale University's Beinecke Library shows drawings from the extraordinary collection of James Swan, 19th-century chronicler of the American Northwest and collector of ethnographic objects and artwork from native peoples of the region, including the Makah Indians of Neah Bay and the Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands. Swan's own sketches provide a striking visual record of the Northwestern frontier. Introductory essays trace Swan's life and the role that Franz and Kathryn Stenzel played in preserving his legacy.
