Biographical/Historical note
Stanley J. Morrow was born in Richland County, Ohio in 1843. He began his photographic career while serving in the Union Army during the Civil War, when he learned photography in Matthew Brady's studio. Following the war, Morrow moved to Yankton, Dakota Territory, where he opened a studio. Frequently leaving the studio in the care of his wife and assistants, Morrow traveled throughout the Central Northwest photographing Native American settlements and army forts. He accompanied Colonel Sanderson on his expedition to rebury Custer at Little Big Horn. In 1879, he became the photographer for Fort Custer but left for Florida in 1882. Morrow died in Dallas in 1921.
