Portrait of Addie Hill, Shasta Costa woman

Description

Portrait of Addie Hill taken in Corvallis, Oregon. Hill, who was a member of the Shasta Costa tribe who graduated from Chemawa School in 1888 at age 20. This photograph likely dates from around that time. She entered the school at age 17 on September 17, 1885, coming from the Siletz reservation. Addie wrote a note on the back of the photograph, addressed to Mrs. M. J. Walker: "From your sewing room girl, Addie Hill." "M. J. Walker" was likely Minerva ("Minnie") J.
