Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Othniel Charles Marsh (1831-1899) was a well-known paleontologist who met Red Cloud (1822-1909) in 1874. While doing fieldwork for the Red Cloud Agency, Marsh assisted Red Cloud in encouraging Indian agent Dr. John J. Saville, a physician accused of graft, to resign from the agency. In 1883, Red Cloud visited Marsh at the Peabody Museum of Yale University, at which time they visited Frank Augustus Bowman (1847-1911), a commercial photographer in New Haven from about 1878-1900.
