Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Benjamin Franklin Upton (1818-after 1901) was a daguerreotypist, photographer, and inventor. He began his career making daguerreotypes in Brunswick, Maine, (circa 1844-1847) then opened a gallery in Bath, Maine, where he obtained several patents for inventions and products associated with daguerreotyping. Upton and his family moved to St. Anthony, Minnesota, in 1856, where he photographed at American Indian agencies nearby, including the Chippewa and Winnebago agencies and Dakota prisoners at Fort Snelling after the 1862 uprising. He copyrighted the series Upton's Collection of Photographic Views in 1865. Upton moved to Florida in 1875.
