Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Jeremiah Gurney (1812-1895) was a pioneering New York City photographer and operator of one of the first American portrait galleries. He opened his studio in 1840, first making daguerreotypes of the city's cultural elite. He transitioned to paper processes around 1853. The Ponca delegates were photographed at Gurney's studio in 1858, when they met to sign a treaty in Washington, DC.
