PROFESSOR S. J. SEDGWICK
Newtown, Queens County, New York

Professor Stephen J. Sedgwick (active 1860ís-1880ís) was an assistant to Andrew J. Russell when Russell was the photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad during construction of the line across the Rocky Mountains. He later purchased Russellís negatives from O. C. Smith, paymaster for the Union Pacific, and published them with his own imprint. He was also associated to some degree with C. R. Savage. Sedgwick gave lectures with lantern slides made from stereoview halves during the 1880ís. He published a book of geography and history which was accompanied by one or more boxes of his views. He also sold at least several dozen sets of views. Examples of these are "Scenes From the Union Pacific Railroad," "Across the Continent," "Date Creek and Laramie Series," a New York City Series, "Rocky Mountain Scenery, California," and of course Yellowstone. The total number of views he produced is probably around 600, all of which are pirated copies.

His Yellowstone views all have the imprint "The Rocky Mountains and Pacific Coast" on the Verso. Also, his catalog titles do not seem to match his actual titles exactly. They are all Joshua Crissman or H. B. Calfee pirate views.


Bob Berry Collection

Mushroom Falls, Yellowstone Park.

This view of Gibbon Falls is interesting because the title does not match any views listed in Sedgwickís catalog. This probably means he has at least one other style of Yellowstone view yet to surface. His images were all taken by Joshua Crissman.


Bob Berry Collection

Great Springs, Yellowstone Park.

This view taken at Mammoth shows another of Sedgwick's styles. This one on yellow mounts. Like its counterpart above, this title does not match any title from Sedgwick's catalog.
