The Joseph L. Dwyer Collection American Samoa 1900-13.

This Gallery presents 14 of 55 photographs from the Joseph L. Dwyer Collection. The photographs were acquired by the former Secretary of Native Affairs Joseph L. Dwyer during his tenure between 1907 and 1913. It is believed that he was the photographer for some of the photographs while he collected others. The photographs appear to date between 1900 and 1913. The titles presented with the photographs are those found in the album that contained them. They are presented here with the permission of Mr. Dwyer's great-grandniece Ms. Karen Wheat who plans on publishing a book of the entire collection.
