[5-6] *"Photographer"; "Photographed by...". Listed in Boston 56-62, Cambridge 65. Outstanding early scenic photographer who was extraordinarily prolific in a very short time. B. ~early 20s; was making cut-price dags in Boston at 228 Washington St. in 47; gradually shifted to photos, specialized in SI portraits especially of theatrical people. Had partnerships with Lay in 57, Heard in 60-61, Edward P. Loring 63-65. Became interested in stereos ~62; major production began in 63. Pub. only a handful of his very first stereos; vast majority by others. First pub. was Frank Rowell from 63-65, then Harvey Friend until end of career. Health declined in 60s; sold equipment & views in 68, said to have D. 70. The American Stereoscopic Co. bought his negs. to add to their fine reprint series; they re-issued about of his work, always with attribution. He almost invariably numbered views sequentially with no repeats & no skips. Output limited to MA, NH, VT, ME, NY. He grouped the ~750 views into categories such as "Mount Desert Scenery", "Cape Ann Scenery", "White Mountain Scenery", "Views of Boston & Vicinity", "Green Mountain Scenery", "Freers Glen,", "Winter Views of Niagara", "Miscellaneous", etc. Had early success in fast exposures, many views of breaking waves. 95%+ of work was scenic, very few genre, statues, etc. Major collection, T.K. Treadwell.
