John H. Fouch had a studio at Contonment Tongue River (later named Fort Keogh), Montana Territory as early as 1877. He photographed Chief Joseph after his surrender and imprisonment there. Also he was the first to photograph the Custer Battlefield at Little Bighorn. His studio was taken over by S. J. Morrow in 1878 and then by L. A. Huffman after that.
During his stay at Ft. Keogh, Fouch also managed to visit Yellowstone National Park. Fouch is known to have made only sixteen Yellowstone Park images. These were part of the set he issued of sixty-three photos entitled "Stereoscopic Views of the Yellowstone Country," apparently taken 1876-1878.
In 1879, after his stay at Ft. Keogh, Fouch produced views from his Minnesota home at Lake Minnetonka. Here he reissued his Yellowstone series under the title "Artistic Views of the Yellowstone Country and Yellowstone National Park, Series of 1876, 1877, and 1878." Most of these photos were of the Montana Territory, but a few were in the park. Some, if not all, of his Yellowstone photos date from the summer of 1878.
